Trouble with YouTube Tag

Post by Robmayn » Wed Jun 11, 2014 2:42 pm

Everytime I try to post a video with the YouTube Tag I simply cannot do it, only the code appears. I am guessing it is becase I have Flash as off, but I cannot see the option to turn it on. Can anyone help me out with this? Thanks.

Ensure that the link you're using is "http://" not "https://" which is generally how Youtube defaults. That's by far the most common issue with embedding videos in posts.

I'm glad there's a thread specifically for that now, as it's an issue that crops up frequently. Now there's a go-to answer in the Support board.

Also, don't use the shortened URL, like youtu.be and so forth, as they are just quicky URLs they provide that won't embed. The best option is to get the link directly from your address bar, and make sure it's http:// and not https://
