Upgraded to 3.2.3 and Forum is not embedding the video..... 3.1.4 had a Media button and worked fine for Youtube. Help would be appreciated.




You do not need a media tag for 3.2.3...
You just enter the youtube video link, board does the rest... automatically assign medi tag to the link... :)

That's my problem. Forum isn't doing it. I've dropped a Youtube link into a post.... all I get is a URL Link...not an embedded video.

Probably because Automatically parse media URLs is set to No.

If enabled, and a link is submitted without bbcode tags that matches your configured media tag URLs, the link will be treated as media instead of a regular hyperlink.

make sure to post the full URL



this works



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qscy5vl17s0[/CODE]

this doesn't

[CODE]www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qscy5vl17s0



also if your using the new short url yout.be you need to install that bbcode



Is it possible to make it catch links without the http:// ? Also, the media bbcode for yout.be is installed by default.

the new one was only installed on 3.2.3, that's why I mentioned it... as some may not have it yet on earlier versions. On parsing non http:// I vote for that as well, but it would have to be changed up to do so.

That is the problem, I'm running 3.1.4, the normal youtube links work but the new ones such as the one prior to this post...

		



Will not work with the media icon or by just placing the url in the body of the editor.

There use to be a simple bbcode in the old days in where you just placed the video ID number such as "KAZwLM_mVzo" after the equal sign.

Can this be fixed somehow to work like this or is there another fix to take the new youtube urls?

Many thanks,
JB
