Sorry, @Michael.J - I have just edited one of the topics hat appeared as a 'guest' and yes, if I edit the topic as an admin it does correct itself.

Put up a patch here so you don't have to wait until the next update to fix this.

Not private of course but I have come to know it is a general problem IPS is trying to handle with Facebook embeds.

Unfortunately I do rely on the internal embed support of IPB 4, so if it's not processing the embeds properly, it doesn't give the Videos app anything to work with.

Have you tried using different urls to the same video?

On another note, is there a way to show videos posted in Videos as embedded rich media in Activity streams instead of plain text?

Hmmm, full embed video or thumbnail? I honestly haven't looked into this yet. I'd be a little concern about it loading multiple embeds if a lot of new videos were posted at once.

This video is an example as you requested. Not talking about the specific video but all from FB. But as I linked I think this an IPB problem unless you deem different.

The thumbnail of the video at least would be nice. Either size of the attached.

Well it kinda is if IPB itself is not converting the url to embed. But I'm just thinking if there's anything I can do to get around it.

I will take a look, this should be possible as I believe IPS apps already do this.

I am having an issue with embedded video not resizing when the screen changes and overlapping into the the other parts of the screen.  I remember I added some custom CSS to fix the directly uploaded videos doing this.  Is there a Custom CSS to address embeded videos?  I am still on 4.5.4 as waiting for 4.6 to come out of Beta.

Nevermind I figured it out using this: https://www.benmarshall.me/responsive-iframes/
