wyoutube is no longer needed since the youtube media tag is already widescreen view.

If you're using Chrome (I think it's the same on FF) try pasting with the "Paste as plain text" on the right click menu.

 

Test:

 

 

Edit: works for me!

ATM if you use special bbcode button and select the media tag, it will embed. Auto parsing needs looking at by a dev.

Or leave it disabled? BBCode works fine and it's quite annoying that all videos always get converted when you want to link to a specific time for example.

If you add a youtube url using the link code in the editor it should remain as a link, this was fixed in 3.4.5 so it should be a non-issue.

 

Testing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WdC4DaYIeQ


And... it works as intended.

I tried that last night, and was still unable to get the video/player to show in IE10. The link was wrapped by a [media] tag in the post after pasting the link into the interface for media, still no joy. 

 

No videos posted so far by anyone have been visible on my end, it's just a blank area where the player should be embedded.

 

Edit - > I should note that this was occurring prior to the update, so not something necessarily update related.

Have confirmed that members are able to paste in plain text YouTube links and they parse correctly. If you ctrl+v it will stay as an url.

 

Marking solved.
