Anyone else not able to see videos embedded into posts? I know this issue seems to pop up now and again.

Yes, sorry for not being clearer. Using a Mac and Safari 15.1.

Yes. The first one is just a big space for me, no image.

Ah - that sounds like this issue, reported earlier: "Youtube insert not working on updated Safari"

I think my last tablet did not let me view embedded videos.

I did find a way to view them, and I think it was by quoting the post which then gave the link or something like that? I don't remember. It may have been by quoting and posting, and then ammending the post I quoted which gave the link?

I'm not sure if this is something you could fix, Cornflake, but I noticed something about my embedded videos. When I go to post, it says Flash is off. When I go into my settings for Wrong Planet, it says Flash is on. Could this be causing the issue and is that something you can fix? I am able to see embedded videos on other message boards.

There exists a BBCode [flash] tag but it's disabled on WP - this is reflected in the "[flash] is OFF" indicator when you're writing a post. I suspect there's a "Display Flash animations: Yes" setting in your profile because that's not the same thing as enabling the attaching of flash videos although really, it's redundant because they can't be embedded so the display/not display choice is moot.

The reference to Flash is a specific Adobe animation technique which, after a lifetime of being responsible for assorted malware, was finally killed off by Adobe - some time after many browsers had already disallowed it.

Unfortunately, this has nothing to do with the embedding of videos such as YouTube content.
I'm not sure which is directly responsible, the phpBB version in use or Safari - but the two of them in combination certainly does cause display issues here.
Sorry, but it's also not something I can change.

One of the 'Apple Specialists' At 'Best Buy' Over the Weekend
Pulled Up the 'Wrong Planet' On What Was Probably A Newer
iPhone with iOS 16, And She Was Able to See YouTube Videos on the 'Wrong Planet.'

i Didn't Think to Ask Her if She Had iOS 16.

i am Wondering, if Anyone Here has Upgraded
to iOS 16 or Bought A New iPhone 14 And Is Able

to View Imbedded YouTube Videos on This Website Again?

I have been able to view embedded videos on Apple devices for a few weeks now.

Still on 15.

One day the embedded videos started working. I did nothing on my end.

Months for the New iOS to Be Removed of Significant Bugs; i'll Check with
the Best Buy Person When i See Her Again to See if She is Running iOS 16..:)
