Can't Link to Videos

Blue Blood

Recommended Posts

As DistantJ pointed out in another topic, it's no longer possible to link to Youtube videos without them becoming embedded. Even if you use URL tags they are automatically changed to media tags when posting.It works with youtu.be addresses (example: http://youtu.be/zY4LGUJ5r3M) but not youtube.com ones.

yeah that's kinda weird, maybe it's just youtube videos, or maybe it's a bug.

Why don't you want them embedded?

Well the only way i see it not embedding is to link it with text, like so. otherwise just use the .be url or deal with it. the board has auto embed on and the media button is gone so theres nothing else we can do.

Embedded videos can often be annoying when they're not the focus of the post, and lots of people still seems have to have difficulty understand how tags work so they can't can't do something like so. It's just a little things, but all these auto fixes that IPB seems to love so much are annoying.
