Hey y'all,

On Shrapnel's suggestion in Chat Thread, I bring you another dilemma involving YouTube videos.

For the past couple days (from Tuesday to now), I and a few others have had trouble with YouTube videos not showing up on the forums. I've done the recommended thing mentioned in another thread, but even then the videos don't show up. All I see is a blank space where the video would normally show up.

No matter what I do, nothing works. I've cleared my cookie data (both on ZS and on my browser, which is Firefox), and still nothing.
Posting the URL links will work, but not the little YouTube button on the boards.

I think this all started when the ZS logo changed to the PHPBB logo the other day. Before then I had no problem, but after that it's been nothing but a headache. So either something got messed up during that time period or the YouTube button hates me.

I know all the admins and most of the mods are busy with Zombie Con right now, but I hope someone on that end can help me soon.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about.







I just posted a video, but notice that there's nothing but blank space showing up. I took out the 's' in the 'http' bit and still it isn't showing up.

Another thing is when you hit preview the YouTube thing goes from having the Y and T capitalized to them being lowercase letters. I wonder if that has anything to do with the videos not showing up or what's up.

The odd thing is, I can see the video you just posted. I think there was one a few days ago that I couldn't, but mostly when people say they can't see anything, others can.

It's not showing up on my end as well as a few other videos that some other members have posted.

Case in point, GingerbreadMan posted some videos of a Mini-14 test in the Firearms Chat thread and they didn't show up for me. They show up when I'm on my phone, but not when I'm on my computer.

I think Rev mentioned he was having the same problem, but he's using Chrome and not Firefox. Which leads me to think that it's a forum problem and not a browser one.

They're missing in Chrome, they appear fine in IE7.

I can't see anything in Firefox.

The videos show up just fine when I'm on my phone (not sure what browser I'm running on it.), but not on my laptop.

Either way, it's getting annoying.

Weirdness here too. One shows up on the phone but not the computer. The one in this thread I can see with either.
