I was able to post videos that way before:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=81

The link from YouTube that I posted on that thread appeared as an embedded video before.

See also two links here:

Quite possible that the recent software update has prevented youtu.be links working so please use the full URL to get videos to embed.

For posting youtube videos

Do not use a youtube address beginning with https://

Only use http:// as below

Code: Select all

You are right, I have always known about man. From the evidence, I believe his wisdom must walk hand and hand with his idiocy. His emotions must rule his brain. He must be a warlike creature who gives battle to everything around him, even himself.
