Now Impossible To Embed Videos In Posts ..

… I have noticed this for the last two or three days and have tried several different
videos with no success.

I will attempt to embed this video here to illustrate.

[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oglmRNQ5fA&index=42&list=PLFm8Ir_OQThvX-ZQpQsl6Gl37qaO1J7Uq[/video]

I used the correct code … I even used the tool bar icon to insert the code, in my attempt to embed the video.

All you get is the link. The link does work, but the video does not embed even with the proper embed code remaining wrapped around it. {Hit the Reply with quote button and you’ll see the proper embed video code is there, namely video in brackets … link… /video in brackets

Can anyone offer help here?

Thanks.

Jack

Cactus,

All I see is a link. I see no embedded video. Do you see an embedded video? If so, then my PC is “haunted.”

… lol …

Edit:

I see you deleted it. You wuz just doing a test run.

Seems to work

Sam, I just copied your entire post and I will now see if your video will embed. Here goes:

Yeah it does work. Is that strange or what?

Sam,

Do me a favor.

Go to YouTube and copy and paste the url from the YouTube site, and see if you can embed it here in this thread.

I gonna try to embed that video using a different browser. Maybe that’s my problem?

Edit: No my browser has nothing to do with it. The video will not embed.

Maybe it is the link. I replied to your post and did a separate post and neither worked. Strange

Maybe it’s the specific video, not your PC or browser - as you can see, it didn’t work for Sam, either. (Don’t mind me, I don’t do videos anyway with my slow dial-up).

Thanks Sam

I see it did NOT embed.

I am looking right at it, and you have the embed code correct and the video did not embed.

Here it is again:

This means it has to be a quirk in RO’s software.

John Galt can fix it.

Yes, was just doing a test. I’m not sure what the problem is but it does seem as though there is some kind of issue with embedding videos.

George W. Bush has struck again.

Embedding can also be disabled by the video uploader.

Nah…it’s the vast right-wing conspiracy nuts! Oh wait a minute! Can’t be! We’re the RWCNs!!

I have been trying to embed videos all day, with no success.

We have a tech quirk here at RO for sure.

Here is another failed attempt:

I can’t either and I posted one earlier today with no problem–the “Aliotta, Haynes, & Jeremiah” song video. But, as Rosanne Rosanna Dana would say, “It’s always something!”

Here’s the brilliant and very funny Gilda Radner:

Hmmm…it worked this time!
