    Unable to view imbedded Youtube videos

    Is it just me or is anyone else having this problem? They just appear as a little black square.

    I went to the forum options and didn't find anything about imbedded video.

    I attempted to post a YouTube video yesterday. It normally automatically imbeds. This one didn't. It just left the link there.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    It looks like the customized code we were using for the functionality is no longer supported, so I'll have to see if I can find a suitable replacement. Thanks for letting me know.

    I installed a new one, but it requires wrapping the [ yt ] and [ /yt ] tags around the Youtube URL (without the spaces between the brackets). Unfortunately, I don't see any way around this to make it function like the old one, but it should be better than nothing.

    Don't include spaces between '[' and the 'y', the 't' and the ']', the '[' and the '/' and the 't' and the ']'.

    Sorry about the above two posts I was trying to figure out if I could embed from an Ipad. I have not done this with any success and unfortunately continued that failure yesterday.
