Embedding Youtube Issues

PostBy: Richard S. On: Tue Apr 19, 2011 10:47 am

Seems that youtube has changed the format of the "Share" button. For the moment these URL's won't work.

Code: Select all
http://youtu.be/NY7lBw28bEM


You need to copy the URL from the address bar and it can't contain any parameters other than the video ID. This is the only format that will work:

Code: Select all
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY7lBw28bEM[/youtube]


This won't work:
Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY7lBw28bEM&feature=related


Anything after the "&" has to be removed.

I'm going to have permanent solution to this as soon as I get to it.

Has anything changed recently ?

I can't seem to inbed videos using the you tube button above.

I tried removing the stuff after the & and it doesn't seem to help.
I tried removing the http://youtube and that doesn't work either.

My formula for virtually 100% success is to:

1) Never use an obscure link to a YouTube video, but rather go to YouTube via the link at hand and then copy the links "title" into the YouTube "search" bar at the top and seek out the primary source of the video. Capture the address of that one.

2) Peg that primary address into a NEPA Crossroads thread using the "youtube" button.

3) Check the address within, and if it begins with HTTPS:, kill the letter "S" leaving behind only HTTP: and what follows.

This method should lead to nearly 100% rock solid success.

I really need to fix this, it's simply not user friendly but fixing it the way I want to fix it has issues that opens a can of worms. :(

It will work every time but it has to be in that specific format, the problem is youtube has so many URL's the same video can be accessed from.

This has to start the url:

Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=


This is the only variable and identifies the video:

Code: Select all
NY7lBw28bEM


Also note you can't have spaces , this will not work:
Code: Select all
[youtube] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY7lBw28bEM[/youtube]


Nor will this:


Code: Select all
[youtube]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY7lBw28bEM[/youtube]

What I have found to work is to share it via emailing to one of my other email accounts.

I use that link to insert in between the you tube brackets. That link has the & and related stuff that has to be removed.
