YouTube , now what ?

Unread post by Buzzard » Tue Sep 19, 2017 7:00 pm

First, a painful broadside from photobucket, removing billions of pictures from forums. :/:

Now it looks like embedded Youtube clips are merely links to leave the forum to watch the clips. :cry:

Is there a way to get the embedded clips working again :?:

Usually when someone embeds a YouTube video in a forum post-- either here or at some other forum-- I end up going to YouTube to view it, anyway, so I can switch to full-screen mode, because sometimes I can't switch to full-screen mode on the embedded video. But if I do that, I usually open the YouTube page on another tab.

I didn't even know there was an issue with youtube videos on the forum :( Will look into it.

Recently I have been putting the url as well as the embedded video in forum posts. Ideally of course we want people to stay here and view but of course I know that's not practicable if you want to view full screen.

Just had a brief look through some videos but couldn't see any issues. All playing within the forum as normal. Can you give me some links to anything that is not working?

Saul, I don't remember if this forum won't switch to full-screen on embedded videos. It works on some forums, but not on all forums. So if it doesn't work on this forum, there might be a setting you can change which will allow it-- or maybe it's something in the code for the viewing window?

Maybe we don't see the same on our computers ?

I see a picture of the video clip, working as a click link.

On top of that is the text:

Flash-embedded videos are no longer supported,
but you can still watch this video on YouTube.
WATCH ON YOUTUBE

btw. I use win10 and the standard explorer.

I'm playing around with the code at the moment so hang on for about 20 minutes.

Should all be ok now however I have added another youtube2 method of inserting videos which might be worth a try. It is supposed to allow you to view full screen from the forum. I'll give it a go in a minute.

Problem with YouTube is it relies on Flash and that is being removed from the web quite fast. Adobe have already admitted defeat and announced it is now a legacy product. Really we should all be using Html5 but I don't think the guys over at phpbb.org have quite caught up yet :(

Nah, not working, but if I use Windows EDGE, it works a charm.
Maybe time to modernize a bit. (man, I hate computers) :oops:

Yeah, computers are just uninteresting but necessary tools for me, the twangers and gear is what brightens up my day. :roll:

I'll have to find a better browser, hopefully one that isn't too difficult to deal with. :oops:
