    I just joined a week or two ago and I used to manually embed yt vids on forums all the time. Well I was trying to post some live performances and couldn't get the embed to work for shit. I tried just copying and pasting the URL, I tried [yt]******[/yt], and I tried [youtube]*******[/youtube]. I used everything after the "=" mark also. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :hbang:

    You do everything after the word 'watch' from the ? onward. So for instance, if I wanted to do this AJFA link, it wouldn't be : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BG1Ng2pU-8, I'd use just the numbers inside the youtube tags

    Edit: apparently that's not quite right either, let me see if I find the last time I did it

    Thanks guy. Man, that shit got on my last nerve. I tried my best. No forum should be this damn hard to figure out.

    My most current drummer can actually play about 80% of ....And Justice for All. Can't wait until he fixes his drums up. This should be good. I know about 70% of the album. We can surely collaborate on this project.

    Often you can just paste the url into the quick reply box and the forum can parse the link and embed automatically, fyi. Used to be the case at least.

    The problem with the auto-embed is that Youtube now defaults to using HTTPS, which starts the address as https://

    But, the forum hasn't been updated to recognize that, and looks for http:// (With no s)

    Change your link from https:// to http:// and it will auto-embed.

    This thread needs no further posts.
