It seems to be working in the preview currently here.

From the complete Youtube URL copy everything after the =.
So from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcHrkhHXoHo you take IcHrkhHXoHo & paste it between [youtube] brackets.

In the "Reply To Thread" window it should look like {youtube}IcHrkhHXoHo{/youtube} except these {} should be these [].

With the correct brackets that ^ code appears in the thread like this:
[youtube]IcHrkhHXoHo[/youtube]

Still works for me Jefe. Where are you seeing the error? When posting or when trying to view a video already posted?

Must be my browser then. I click play and it says an error occurred. I click the youtube button in the bottom right to open it up in a new tab and it pulls up the main youtube page. I have to quote a post, copy the code and paste it in youtube to see vids

Im using SRWare Iron which is based off of Chrome. Just stopped working a couple months ago

Edit: Just updated the browser and had to dl a new version of flash. Working again!

It's not working at the moment. I'm trying to figure out if YouTube changed their code or if something on my end is off.

I'm sorry, but no. I was never able to find a fix.

I'm in the process of updating to newer forum software, so once that happens the youtube linking issue should be resolved. But that's a big job and not something I can do overnight.
