Postby PBells » Fri Aug 12, 2016 10:58 am

Anyone else seeing black rectangles instead of Youtube videos? Just noticed it in the "Song you're listening to now" thread... :radioactive:

Ok, so it's not just me. I'll look in the ACP to find a solution but if I can't I might have to look at actual coding... that will be terrible. And if I find a problem in the code, the site owners might not give enough of a shit to fix it. Either way, no promises guys.

I'm missing a lot of good music in the 'Song You're Listening To Now' thread, I'm sure.

I think I have it figured out. I just have to change how the tag works in the admin control panel but I'm drunk right now and anyone that works in tech (which I don't so who knows what will happen) knows that one typo will fuck everything up. I think I will be able to fix it tomorrow.

In the meantime, don't try to embed youtube videos, just put in the URL of said video so people can at least see them, for the time being.

Any updates on this?

The video thumbnails are displayed on my mobular device but I can't play them from it (I never could, it's not a big deal or anything), but still the black boxes appear on my home and work computers. I can still watch the videos by quoting the post and copy/pasting the link into a new page, of course, but it is slightly less convenient.

No progress yet.

Just came here to post this. Glad it's not just me... can we fix it?

:lol:

That's why you never test things out in the production environment! :P

Though... in this case, you don't really have an option unless you spool up an AWS image of Linker, which would take longer than it's worth to stage I'm guessing.

Should be fixed now. The previously embedded videos should also be reappearing.
