    Also been wondering why I cant embed Youtube videos anymore.

     

    Does the Youtube Video embed  still work when posting?

    From what I can tell there isn't any way to embed vid's anymore.  You can add them using the link at the very bottom of the post, but can't embed them.

    The link is what I am talking about. I use to post videos through that link and they would show up as playable videos in my threads. Now it does not work anymore.

    Rez'en a old one here, but how do folks get the YT videos in their threads and not just the link. I've done it by accident before but now no matter what I do now I just get a link but I would like to embed it. Can anyone let us know how this is done. Thanks :)

    Nice - this used to work before, and didn't work for the longest time - I guess it's back in action again.

    So being able to post videos in threads is thread specific, I know I've tried doing it in some and it just wont work, then in other ones it does... are they able to turn the feature on and off or something? 

    * Well thanks DM for your help, I got my video posted on the Pantheon forum, you might like it too, check it out it's a good one...  :)
