Someone finally looked into the forum's source code and changed "http://www.youtube.com/embed/" to "https://www.youtube.com/embed/" in the BB code section.

The embeds were initially broken because the site is served over the more secure HTTPS protocol, but YouTube videos were still being embedded over HTTP, making browsers block this embedded content because it's deemed unsafe.

Man "Hamster" Steve is amazing!

It was never a problem for me, but it's good that other people can now see it.

It was working back on the 15th when I embedded a video for the hell of it (then added the url underneath because I wasn't expecting it to work), so at the very least it was operational then. Not sure how much earlier than that it was working though.

Now they just have to disallow auto-roll and it will be back to a fully working state.

You mean autoplay? Isn't there already a rule against that?

Or is that just an unspoken agreement between us since the Wild West autoplay spam debacle?

It's a bit of an unspoken rule or I think someone said that only the OP can do that.

And just like that, the autoplay scourge is upon us again.

Well it was nice while it lasted, at least.

Welp! Gotta edit all my posts with Youtube links and embed them properly.
