yes Facebook posts were able to be embedded before. Yes it would have to be a public post for it to work.

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

Well, let's see if an admin or IB can help with that. I'm not sure how much they can do with a niche website like Facebook, though.

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

Well, Facebook links were straight up not appearing before, so we fixed that. Let me test if embeds work on our other sites

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

Did the embed happen automatically with a copy/paste or did you need to put it in an iframe?

It used to be automatic with copy/paste of their embedding code.

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

Just post the link, directly. I.e. copy the URL from your browser, and paste it into the post.

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

But if you want good embedding, use [ YT ] and [ /YT ] (without spaces) around the video ID. So if the link is YouTube . com / ABCDEFGHIJK, then just everything after the / needs to be in the YT tags.

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

No matter how I try I can't get a video embed to work in the Post Your Favorite Song thread. Every single way I've tried results in an invalid URL. If I just post the URL, that's all I get: the URL, no video. If I try to use the Upload button, no matter what I copy/paste in there, it doesn't work (Invalid URL). What's the new secret for embedding videos here now? Embedding for dummies =

Edit: OK, so you have to manually type the [ YT ] and [ /YT ] (without spaces) around the URL. Jeez, what a pain in the ass. Embedding videos here used to be simple.

Edit: Well, that didn't work. I had to edit the post and delete my manually typed in tags, then it worked. Again I say: What in pain in my ass. WTF is going on here???

Edit: Tried to edit my post to add a few words, and all my words wanted to be URL'd Clicked the URL button to try to un-URL it, and it un-URL'd the link as well. I give up. I'm done trying to post videos here.

Cutting and pasting the url directly:


Using "YT" in brackets with only the code "lci8f2Ll03c" inbetween:

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

Have you actually submitted the post, and still only get the URL?

When I preview my post, I only see the URL, but once I submit it, the video shows up.

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

It's been so long since I've tried to post a video, the idea that the video doesn't show up in Preview is just plain stupid and I wonder why any self respecting web developer would allow that to pass muster. I had no idea that while I was trying to see what the end result would look like before I posted it, it was never going to happen. It used to...

The reply box should have icons that represent the hosted video for example youtube, instagram, etc and you just url the link the way you do for a picture upload. This makes it so much easier instead of solving puzzles with video linking which is a pain in the ass sometimes.

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

Since it'll probably be awhile before I try to post a video in the Post Your Favorite Song thread again, I'll more than likely have to come back to this thread and try to decipher what actually works.

No wonder it's been so long since I posted in that thread.

? Did you try what I said? Nothing to decipher. Just post the YouTube link.

I agree. Ideally this would work for any video from any site, but I gather a universal solution isn't possible.

true, but it is possible to have it do some automatic tagging based on the url. Another forum (based on newer software, I imagine) does this quite eloquently. You click one button and get this:



Given how DVDTalk changed/updated the 'attach image' interface a while back, maybe this kind of thing is possible, at least for the bigger media hosts like YouTube, FB, Twitter, etc.

No, I haven't tried it yet, but I will next time I want to post a video in the Favorite Song thread.

Re: Did embedding videos get killed off?

I didn't know one could just post the whole link. I have just been using the [yt] tags since embedding ceased working.

Really? That's great! Just today I posted a youtube vid using tags. I'll have to try it out. It seems it's easier than embed html code.

Might it be browser specific? I wouldn't expect so, but I'm using Chrome.

How strange that it's not working in my post. Baffling.
