Can't think of any. This works:



I assume you are trying to use the "add youtube video" button above the posting window?

Do you mean you just get a blank screen for my post? Because it is working here, in which case, the issue must be your own browser settings, or the videos in question being blocked by your own country or ISP.

What browser are you using. Can you try another?

As I said have no problem with other sites. So it's not a country issue. Owning a Mac, I use Chrome and Safari.

How do I change my browsers setting?

I had a similar problem, my browser tried to block "insecure content" because of the http link. I had to give permission for those bad insecure youtube video links tongue grin

It could be a country issue. Youtube (and others like the BBC, Vevo, etc), block content from being shown in some countries due to copyright restrictions. They do this by knowing your personal IP address. I can tell you what yours is, if you want, it's one of the things moderators can see on every post! wink

To check it, you could try using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) - some allow free trials, such as ZenVPN, and get it to lie about which country you are in. It does this by routing all your traffic through a proxy router in another country. It will be enough to confirm if this is the issue.

Browser setting will be under Tools, at least in IE and Opera, but you need to know what to alter and why.

Incidentally, I have no experience of Macs, but maybe THAT is an issue?

How can it be a country issue if the same links are working on different sites??

I assumed he meant other sites altogether, as in not youtube. As is often the case, it would help if people actually posted what they mean, rather than generic statements. Given that it appears to be working for everyone else, it appears not to be a youtube or conforums issue, but hey, if my help isn't wanted, I have plenty else to keep me occupied!
