youtube links / embeds

so it seems like youtube has started personalizing by country URLs.. anything i go to is "ca.youtube.com/whatevs" instead of "youtube.com/whatevs". which means they don't automatically embed unless you take out the country code. is there an easy way to fix that or is it just a thing.

Any chance the embedded Youtube code can be updated to include the HD and fullscreen buttons? That would be awesome.

Another request - on ILG we occasionally get threads with like a dozen YT embeds and it becomes a real choke on the browser. It is possible we can get them to collapse to a link or thumbnail it Kotaku-style?

you can just select don't show images in your preference, which should collapse the YT's to just text links.

The only prob with this - and sorry, this is a complete aside from the topic at hand - is if you have images off and click on a YT embed it comes up as this fukkedup fullscreen crappy thing, is there any way of fixing that?

I'm guessing no, but wtev.

Bump - asking again, any chance we could get the fullscreen button added to YouTube embeds? Especially with HQ/HD videos it would be really nice. I think you just need to add two lines to the code, according to this page's info (skip down to "fs").

Nhex, tried this, but it doesn't seem to work. Have changed code (locally) and it's now generating what I think should work (according to that link), but it doesn't do anything:


<object width="425" height="355">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/v_UyVmITiYQ&fs=1&hl=en";></param>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/v_UyVmITiYQ"; type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" heigh\
t="355"></embed>
</object>

Can you spot what I'm doing wrong, because I can't.

Keith, Tuesday, 2 June 2009 19:56 (ten years ago) link

On line 5, embed src needs &fs=1 added after the URL, the same way it does in line 2.

Nhex, Tuesday, 2 June 2009 20:15 (ten years ago) link

D'oh. Right you are. Give me ten minutes.

Keith, Tuesday, 2 June 2009 20:31 (ten years ago) link

Bit strange that it needs told twice each time, right enough.

Keith, Tuesday, 2 June 2009 20:32 (ten years ago) link

Okay, think that should be it now.

Does it work? I can't see it, being an admin...

Keith, Tuesday, 2 June 2009 20:37 (ten years ago) link

yes, it does!

oops, that was supposed to say -- are youtube embeds not working for anyone else?

be careful not to use the new youtu.be links - ilx doesn't currently recognise them

Any chance that YouTube embeds can be switched to HTML5 instead of Flash?

A problem on Firefox in the past month - older embeds are rendered as blank spaces, but recent embeds are fine.

On Chrome I think some embedded videos appear as https links instead?

sbahnhof, Saturday, 30 September 2017 10:13 (one year ago) link

can you post a link to an example of an older embed?

This page for example:

music videos where they blurred out stuff

Posts #2 and #5 are both meant to have Youtube videos - http embeds maybe - but they display differently by browser:

Chrome (signed out) = URL link https://www.youtube, etc
Chrome (logged in) = blank space. Same on Android afaik
Mozilla Firefox = nothing, no text, link or space

I've also put a GIF link, with "img" formatting, which only shows up as a URL link - but that's only on Chrome when signed out. (Similar to the YT vids.)
Thanks Koogs!

sbahnhof, Friday, 20 October 2017 23:35 (one year ago) link

the blurred videos are https links like https:// www.youtube.com / watch ? v=xxxxx

which show up fine in firefox with pictures off! but, yes, were missing this morning using android firefox.

koogs, Saturday, 21 October 2017 18:39 (one year ago) link

Maybe I have to make it more obvious.

This is what I'm seeing, on Firefox and Android. Actually, Android is worse, because there are big blank spaces where the videos would be.

Thread = It's Friday, Post Vids of Chill Tunes Why Not? (started in 2010)

Chrome seems to be converting the embeds to appear as https links for users not logged in. Usually they appear as embeds when I'm logged in on Chrome, but today it's not even that – just blank spaces, same as Android.

(This is only for embeds 12+ months old. New embeds are fine.)

sbahnhof, Friday, 3 November 2017 11:31 (one year ago) link

Ah, and this is the same page on Chrome (when logged out), with the https links
