I like to hang out on CD music and often share youtube links. Normally when I use the "inset link" tab my youtube video will display the video right on the post. Now for some reason the link does attach but the video does not post. What adjustments do I need to make. Do I need java? I haven't used java in a long time and if I remember correctly I did upload without it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Why do you care that the video itself is NOT shown.
As long as the next interested person can click on a working link,
would that not be sufficient ?

To answer your question, *I do not know*
Maybe the website now does NOT allow what you like to see before ?

I suspect that embedding videos, maybe taking up bandwidth too much ?

Just post the youtube link directly into the message body. Don't use "Insert Link".

Thanks jaypee but that didn't work either. I have no clue what went wrong?

When you are on Youtube click the share button then use the code provided, not the code to embed.

Thanks julian17033, tried it and that failed as well. I'm really puzzled. Now more than ever I want to fix it, you know how it is, you don't want to let it beat you!

If you are using IE 10 or 11 you may have to turn OFF active x filtering... when I upgraded from IE 8 to IE 10 a lot of video related stuff was not working - including Netflix streaming..

jaypee, I checked and the box was already set for the videos to appear. I even tried turning it off, save, then turning it back on again and save. No luck. I'm one of those people who just has to know whats wrong. It's driving me crazy...I don't sleep nights, LOL, only kidding. But I hate loose ends and this is a loose end. I like to know why so I can prevent if from happening again.
