Youtube Embeds

This is address for your video




PS see link



Both links are valid.

@AlphaStar - the error message returned is because some form of error has occurred while the software has attempted to retrieve the oembed code from youtube. The error generated isn't logged by default by IPS, only at debug level. Do the following:

If you have a constants.php file (in the same location as your conf_global.php file) then add this to it:

define( 'DEBUG_LOG', true );

If you don't have a constants.php file, create one and add this to it:

define( 'DEBUG_LOG', true );

Then attempt to do the embed again.

Result should be a log entry in either 'System logs' or 'error logs' in the Support section of the ACP - post the information it provides.

Reminder: remove the above from your constants.php file when finished.

Please provide a link to a topic in your community where you posted a youtube link

I have a closed forum from guests, if you need the source code, here is:

<div class="cPost_contentWrap">

<div data-role="commentContent" class="ipsType_normal ipsType_richText ipsPadding_bottom ipsContained" data-controller="core.front.core.lightboxedImages">

@Nathan Explosion I did not notice that you wrote that need to create a file. Here are the errors in the admin area 🙂

Thanks - it's failing where I expected it to be, so next step is for a closer look at what the 'errorMessage' value is that is being reported when this happens at the back-end.

I'm happy to take a closer look if you send me some login credentials for the site (not the ACP) via PM in the next few minutes.

Your issue isn't that Youtube is not embedding - the issue is that no external links can be embedded

All of the following items should have embedded successfully:




All of the above cannot be embedded because "The url is not allowed"

I suspect that your hosting isn't allowing your server to make outbound calls to the target sites (that is what does the embedding call, your server...not your device/computer) and the response from that block is "The url is not allowed".
