Linking to Youtube Videos on This Site


Chippy

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I sometimes link to stuff here from youtube, and on going back to the post after posting it - the link has completely dissapeared.  This is just copy - pasting the link...

 

 

So just hoping Etta James' greatest hits got linked to above.

 

Edit: Nope, nothing - but it appears before I click post.  Any ideas?  Much appreciated.

You're probably having a plugin issue with your browser, because these forums automatically convert youtube links to videos we can play. So if that video isn't showing up, it's probably because your browser has blocked it.

 

Here's what your post looks like right now:

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

One thing I noticed is, it will never show me a media if using https instead of http. Youtube videos are usually from a belgian domain if you use the share button (giving you something like https://youtu.be/blahblah (with the s in https that prevents it from actually showing)

I don't think you're allowed to post more than two videos per post - they start becoming normal links if you do.

Yeah, when on a page with Youtube, FF blocks it as the connection is not secure, disabling that allowed the videos to show
