Video Embed Problem

Solved Video Embed Problem

Post by TexasBlue on April 30th 2011, 3:06 am

The last couple of days, I've had trouble with video embedding, YouTube in particular. I know YouTube changed how to grab the embed codes but I have everything the way it supposed to be. I even have HTML allowed in my admin panel.

What it does is that I paste the embed code and the video is posed. But at the top of the video is the [YouTube] opening tag. Underneath the video is the [/YouTube] close tag.

Any ideas? This just started happening 2 days ago. I'm assuming it's a YouTube thing, but I wasn't sure. So, I thought I'd post this.

Firefox.

This problem just started a couple days ago. I was able to post videos with no problem before.

Keep in mind, the video still posts as it should. I just see open and close tags for YouTube. One member couldn't see the vid at all but I think he has an outdated plugin for his browser. Others can see it fine.

Are you using the BBCode correctly? For example:

Code:
[youtube]youtube video link here[/youtube]

...there is no need to use capital letters in the tags. Wink

Yeah, I copy the embed code, then right click the movie strip button on top there and paste.

For YouTube videos, there is no need to use embed codes. Simply paste the URL to the video in the [youtube] tags. Smile

I didn't know that. I'll give that a whirl and see how it turns out. Thanks!

That worked but the other way isn't solved yet.

I like to use custom embed to make thew video size larger.

If I may, here's what I tried to do in my forum. I'll embed the video (and you all may have a laugh)

[youtube]<object width="700" height="555"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hiy7mHFnU1Y?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hiy7mHFnU1Y?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="700" height="555" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>[/youtube]

Edit: Upon embedding in here, I get nothing but codes. In my forum, it shows except the open/close tags.

Don't use the youtube bbcode tags when using the html embed code.

Just use this html code.
Code:
<object width="700" height="555"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hiy7mHFnU1Y?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hiy7mHFnU1Y?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="700" height="555" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Make sure html is enabled.
