Embedded YouTube Videos Not Working/Showing Up
« on: January 22, 2018, 12:01:15 AM »
So the other day I came across the issue described in the title.  My old laptop was having the same problem, but I just got the one I'm using right now less than a month ago.  On it, the embedded YouTube videos on this site were working just fine until just a couple days ago.  Is there any sort of fix for this?

Thank you.

Which browser are you using? Likewise, do you see the embedded video at all?

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

Chrome and no.
Chrome WAS working just fine for me.
On my old laptop it didn't but at school it does.

Just had the same problem in the post about how the PlayTape logo may have been the inspiration for the TPIR dollar mark. Posted a video to Techmoan's PlayTape video, and it said "Invalid YouTube Link". And I'm running Firefox 58.0.1 on Ubuntu 64-bit.

The Youtube embed code is really wonky here...

You have to remove the "s" from the "https:/"  in the URL in order for it to embed properly. It doesn't like it otherwise.
