Pending phpBB update

Post by extrememarine » Wed Jan 31, 2018 10:43 am

Just FYI - there is an update for the forum software. I will get time scheduled to get that done. I noticed that the youtube video embeding is not working correctly, so it might be related to this upgrade. Should be able to get to it this by this weekend.

Could be phbb version related, Wayne. But I did hear that youtube was wanting to nix the 3rd party cross displaying of their video's. Yes, they still have ads within the video's themselves, but they feel they are missing out on more exposure with the full page showings of banners, advertisements and click thru links ....directly on their site.

As we learned w Photobcuket, it usually comes down to money. argh

It would not surprise me if Youtube follows the path that photobucket it. Of course, there would be the option of a "premium" account of some sort...

The Youtube embed is added BBCode to the editor, new version of the forums won't fix it, it's custom. Top_Speed is correct in why it isn't working. You tube likes to find those holes and plug them every once in a while. If I can get time, I'll see if there's another work around and fix it.

William, We sorted out the youtube issue, it was related to https vs http. I still need to go through the update. Probably this weekend.
