No, but we might have tweaked things with the BB code to make the Youtube code unnecessary. Should be that now, you just need to post the link directly, not needing to worry about adding the bbcode.

Can someone link me a thread where they are still seeing a broken video? That is, if it's still occurring

The URL-based ones irritatingly load themselves without asking because they're HTML 5 instead of flash, meaning my computer is going to be brought to a crawl if I ever enter a thread that has multiple videos posted to it again. The old flash ones still work fine for me as click to load though in chrome so I don't know what the problem is for others.

i think if you tweaked the bb codes, then thats why i can't see the videos embedded with the [youtube] bb code anymore.
however, most people still use them and i believe they dont have any problems with it. i can only see videos embedded with the [url] bb code.
kevin posted a link to a thread with videos are largely embedded with the [youtube] bb code, and those are the ones i can't see. (not many people seem to have this problem though)

That link provided by @Kevin001 is a thread that displays several youtube embedded videos. Can you guys provide a link to a thread where the error is occurring? Or we're able to see that here, but you cannot, please send us screenshots so we can see what you see.

Thanks for your patience and cooperation.

@mt moyt @Kevin001 have you tried clicking in the empty video area? I believe Chrome recently made all flash objects click-to-load for everybody.

Alright. Still no plain and simple explanation for what's going on. Do you use any plugins with your browser? Such as an adblocker or something? Could be we changed something on our end which is causing an clash between it and the site

I know I had this issue before I think you guys changed something. I use adblocker but that doesn't make the vids white. I'm not sure if its a chrome problem....windows problem or what.

When I post youtube url links now it auto embeds them as a large video like this:


So it seems you can't just post a url link anymore. I can see the embedded videos fine though.

They work in chrome for me right now, but a while back I remember having that issue too when they changed stuff before.

exactly, something changed

@Helena_SAS its not the ad block because I've disabled it to see if that helped. i believe this problem started when [url] bb codes made videos embedded rather than a link to click on. so i think something changed but I'm not sure why its only affecting a couple of users
