Post by Ducklakeview » Fri Jan 05, 2018 10:02 pm

Is it just me??

Also, old threads seem to have "lost" the videos..

I noticed but thought it might be only on mobile devices (Vimeo hasn’t worked on mobs for a while). Can someone on a desktop confirm if they can see the below vid?

Can't see it on Windows 10 / Firefox, or on my iPad.

Seems to have coincided with the change to HTTPS - Wonder if something needs changing in the embed code/tag?

Yep, you're correct. If you check the browser console you can see the video link is not secure and is being blocked by the browser.
If you just change the "http" to "https" in the YouTube link* it should work.

EDIT: *not YouTube link but site embed code

Don't think it will, as to embed, you use the end of the actual link, not the http/s bit - I presume something needs to be doone on the forum software with the youtube tags themselves.

Hey Mike, You're absolutely right. I've not embeded any video on here before so didn't realise.

Yeah, the custom BBcode needs to be changed to use https instead of http.

Noticed this a few days back. It's not working on my PC win7 & crome. My huddle. Android & crome. Or my Samsung S4 mini. Android and explorer. :?
