Solved youtube vids not showing in topic

Post by FENSTER on May 28th 2011, 11:47 am

Ive created a forum but when posting the youtube video's are not showing up, they are just showing the link instead, ive checked all the settings in the admin panel and they are the same as my other forum which does show the video's perfectly fine so im stuck here have i missed something small and vital?

forum without working video's www.hyperforumuk.co.nr (vid in call of duty section)

forum with working video's www.gobby.co.nr (working vid is juiced 2 hin trailor topic)

hopefully someone can help me here.

UPDATE: now done a test topic on gobby and the vid works fine. still dont show vids on hyperforum Sad so it is definatly the site settings not my browser or anything like that.

UPDATE.... i have also just noticed on the forum with the problem my WYSIWYG is also not doing as it should. if you hit B for bold it shows the bbcode in the post not what is known as WYSIWYG dont know if that has anything to do with it or helps in any way what the problem might be.

well to insert the video i use the video button on the post tool bar which you then just insert the http link of the video and it comes up ok in the post on the gobby forum but not my hyper forum. it just comes up as a link with bbcode looking stuff at either end that says flash.

its almost as if my browser doesnt support it but it works fine with other forum so i know its not the browser. would you like a direct link to both topics so you can see the difference?

hyperforum (not working) - http://hyperforum.bigforumpro.com/t16-jopsh47madman-tomahawk-kill

gobby (working) - http://gobby.friendhood.net/t573-video-test-post

same video posted the same way.
unless i missed something little im sure all the setting in the admin panel are the same on both sites regarding images bbcode html WYSIWYG etc.

I know exactly what it is its one of these 2 (A) You miss typed the url or (2) the video was removed from youtube, I know this by clicking on the link because it gives me a error saying "this location could be found" Did you try posting the SAME video in the forum where the video feature DOES work.

Get back to me, Sincerly Brandon_g

yeah, the video i posted is my mates video so i know its still active and the one that works is as you can see by topic name "test video topic" only a recent post from when i found the problem, so worked out the youtube video is fine, the link was copied and pasted on both forums with the same copy, so rules that out, ive tried everything and the only thing i can put it down to is a setting within the forum (hyper) is not checked or selected the same as other forum (gobby)

browser checked
youtube link checked
video checked
java and flash etc checked

can only leave settings but just cant find any other options possible it could be within the admin panel.

if i could get a list of options that would effect the input of video's then i can check them all as i may have missed one.

its a brain ache lol

UPDATE.... i have also just noticed on the forum with the problem my WYSIWYG is also not doing as it should. if you hit B for bold it shows the bbcode in the post not what is known as WYSIWYG dont know if that has anything to do with it or helps in any way what the problem might be.

Do you have HTML or BBcode? This would help.

BBcode you need [youtube]youtube link here[/youtube]
If its html you would see codes.

yeah all the setting for html and bbcode same as my forum that works

it just now shows [youtube]youtube link here[/youtube] like that in the post, before it was showing like that before i hit send then when i hit send it showed [flash] at either end and not the video.

also the WYSIWYG is not doing its business so im not sure if that has anything to do with it Sad

I think if you could have a quick look when your free mr mario thats probably the best bet. i can PM you the log in. might be easier coz i am totally at my wits end trying to work out what i might have missed.

Hi,
Did you allow BB codes in your Admin Panel >> General >> Messages and emails >> Configuration >> Allow BB: Yes?
Allow Html: Yes?

bbcode yes
html code yes

all the obvious settings are set the same as the other forum that works.

heres my config......

Allow HTML : yes
Allow BBCode : yes
Allow Smilies : yes
Activate extended message editor : yes
Activate the WYSIWYG mode by default in the posts : yes
Allow Attachments : yes

still the attachment of vid comes up like this

[fl ash(425,350)]h ttp://www.youtube.com/v/ 7f6mVgtu94k[/f lash]

but without the gaps, had to place that gap in as when i posted that link the video came up on this forum, just wont on mine.

Hi, make sure that 'Disable BBCode in this post' and 'Disable HTML in this post' are both unchecked when posting the video. Smile

OMG!!!!!! it worked!!!!!

Base if we were in prison together i would protect you in the showers! Very Happy

just a quick question though, would i have to keep unchecking these boxes when posting as well as other users or is there a main setting to keep them unchecked? Smile

And why would we ever be in prison, mate? Razz

As Sanket said, there's an option in the preferences to stop this from happening for all future posts. You're welcome! Very Happy
