Not sure what's going on with YouTube links. I take out the S from https, which used to embed the video in a post, but now it's giving me this "device support" error:

https://youtube.com/devicesupport

Oddly enough, it works when I click the "Preview" post button, but not when I actually post.
Oh yeah, and also:

Soda as well.

That's weird, I've heard some other folks have been having trouble with Youtube links as well. I'll tell Jorge.

I totally forgot about this thread, but yes, I said it to Jorge 2 days ago, hopefully it is something easy to fix.

It seems AEVA Media, the SMF plugin that I installed that allows auto-embedding to happen on the Forum, is no longer supported by the new version of Youtube that's being rolled out.
So new videos from Youtube (and possibly all videos once it's fully placed) may no longer be able to be embedded on the forum.

There is more information on the Youtube Support Page.  Specifically, the words " If the video appears unexpectedly in a web browser, it means that website is using an outdated method to access YouTube videos".

This could be a problem, as we may have to revert back to posting just the link to Youtube.

However, there may be a better solution, but in order to find it, I need your help, guys.

We need to scour the Simple Machines Forums Customization & Mods Page for a new plugin that allows us to auto-embed Media.
Our current plugin, AEVA Media, is outdated and no longer supported by the authors, since they've moved on to another program that costs money and I don't think it's compatible with SMF.

Find that plugin, and check if it's updated.  Then get back to me about it and I will install it to the board, and remove the old AEVA Media plugin.

If we cannot find such a plugin, we'll have to revert back to just posting the links to Youtube instead.

Found those, you should give a look and choose the better:

Testing the new Youtube embed tag (youtube)(/youtube) only with square brackets:



UPDATE: So this mod I added works, but you HAVE to use the URL that Youtube gives you in the "Share" options.  It's usually shortened to something like youtu.be/bunchofnumbersandletters
If you use the URL from the browser, our forum turns it into a link and it won't load/display properly.

Awesome!

It may just be me, but is anyone else getting PMs without it notifying you with the (1) next to "Messages"?

I have received a couple that I just randomly saw when looking back for an old PM.

Yeah, that happens to me all the time. I've just stopped relying on my email to remind me about PMs and just check the top of my page every day.

It is one of those that I suggested? I'm glad that it works, but if some of these could act like before it would be easier for newbies and easier to everyone. Even so thanks for finding a fix, now we can continue watching videos on the dungeon ;D

Not sure why I'm still having YouTube embed problems. Could be that I'm editing a previous post or this video is somehow fudged.

Anyway, I'm just using the bracketed (youtube)(/youtube) tags with the full URL in between. Using the straight link gives me the video player graphics but no video:



and taking out the S in https doesn't show anything at all:



BOTH, however, work when I click Preview Post, but not when I actually make the post.
Oh yeah, and also:

Wonder what happens if I try a different video.



Edit: Same thing, and when I edit this post, it shows (url)(/url) tags around the link between the YouTube tags which I didn't put there.

From what I tried, it seems you can't put any text before the video.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

Ab, you know that we can't use direct links anymore right? We need to use these that youtube give to us when we use its share function, yeah, this sucks but is better than nothing.

Oh, dumb. That's the exact opposite of every other forum with a YouTube tag. :p If you use the shortened URL, nothing comes up. Guess I misread Jorge's post 'cos I'm always so used to using the full URL.

Anyway...

Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.
