Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

As you probably have realized we have problems displaying embedded youtube videos, if you click on them to play them they (youtube) let you know "An error occured, please try again later).

SOLUTION for the time being is clicking on the link (video title) below the embedded video, this will display the original on youtube which works fine.

The problem seems to lie in the fact that youtube changed its URL structure for videos, which means we will have to change the embedding software code. As this is a labourus task of various hours and high potetial of failure I will address it on the coming weekend when I can devote some consecutive time to this.

The good news is that with the new embedding code we will use in the future we not only can embed videos but also anything else just by typing an URL, from pictures in gallery mode, to google maps, street views, pdf etc.

Here a preview on how this will look, e.g. for a vid gallery:



or here for a picture album of any user:

Please everybody try whether this embedded video will play for you.

Whether it works or not, please post here the result of your test and the browser you used.

It finally seems the browsers are source of the problem and not the forum software.

Thanks, TA

OK, so maybe it was just me? Together, then, with a lot of other users of youtube running either FF, Chrome or Safari: http://support.mozilla.com/ak/questions/703853

SOLUTION:

Delete "youtube.com" cookies, clear cache.

This should be enough to make the vids display normally again (worked for me on Mac with FF and Safari, and for two friends with FF on PC).
