    I was going to post a YouTube upstairs, and when i previewed my post, all I got was the <youtube> tags but not the vid preview.

    So just to see, i copied my entire post (incl any quotes) and pretended to post in the WL. sure enough, in the post preview the youtube showed up normally.

    Any idea whats going on? youtubes should post in all the forums right? or are they limited to VIP areas?

    Yes, they should work in all areas. Maybe a transient error with you tube? Try again and if the problem persists please let me know.

    I experienced a similar problem this weekend. I pasted a link to a youtube within the youtube tags. and all I got was a big white box:

    I was thinking (and still am kind of), that I just screwed something up.

    You put the entire URL between the YOUTUBE tags: just put the video ID string (for example: vT2uSoHjJGY) and you'll be fine.

    this is weird. I tried a video in this thread and it showed up, in the post, and also as a preview. so just to see, i pretended to post the same video in this thread

    http://forums.johnstonefitness.com/showthread.php?p=633673#post633673

    it's totally unrelated, but it was just to test the preview. anyway, this same kitty video that shows up perfectly in the post above, shows up as just letters in the youtube tag when i post it in that thread.

    not like its a HUGE deal or anything, but something does appear to be screwy. :confused:

    i dunno if its something in the main fitness forums or just something specific to me. :cry:

    EDIT - FYI, the thread I was trying to post to yesterday is this:

    http://forums.johnstonefitness.com/showthread.php?t=43967

    and the kitty video doesn't work their either. so thats two separate youtubes that won't post, in two different areas of the main fitness forums

    I double-checked the permissions for Bronze membership level and also for the forums your mentioned. Everything looks OK. I can't see why this is happening.

    I'll run some more tests with my test account at various membership levels and see if I can figure out what's going on.
