    Some of you may have noticed that your You Tube videos aren't embedding.

    I had the same problem recently and thanks to Aegis there is a solution.

    If you post something like this, [ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QG5Pq8MrvGk"]Beginner Sparring - Top Things to Keep in Mind - YouTube[/ame], the video won't appear.

    This is because the software that embeds the videos doesn't recognise the "s" in "https", so edit out the "s" and your video will embed as usual.

    That didn't work for me. I just tried it. However, someone posted that tip and a couple of other steps to make them embedd. I thought I would look at it and save it somewhere later.

    Now is later and I can't find it. That is what I get for not doing it immediately.

    It was posted in the last couple of days, but I can't remember where or who posted it? Anyone remember this post that could point me to it? Or maybe the OP of the post I am talking about could post their instructions on this thread?

    Edit- nevermind. I found the post, but the additional information was about the at the beginning and end. That see...ointed removing the "s" isn't working for me.

    I had the same issue a couple of days ago and had to get Simon to embed a video for me.

    Removing the "S" did not work for me either....

    Edit: Worked fine. Removed the S before sending the post and it added the url tags automatically.

    You'll have seen I'm sure the change in appearance of embedded videos.

    You can now post a link starting with http or https.

    This video was posted with the https prefix.
