What was the URL you were trying to embed? Was there anything after the video ID in the URL? Was it a "shortened" URL?
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

It has to be the full YouTube URL (not the shortened one YouTube gives you when you hit "share", for some reason) with nothing after the video ID. Here's an example of one that works:

Code: Select all

[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy__Jp5SAtU[/YouTube]
Which produces this as the result:


And here's some examples of ones that don't work:

Code: Select all

[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy__Jp5SAtU&lc=UgySm4pTWO5fZoquBCF4AaABAg[/YouTube]
[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy__Jp5SAtU&t=35s[/YouTube]
[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy__Jp5SAtU&feature=youtu.be[/YouTube]
[YouTube]https://youtu.be/gy__Jp5SAtU[/YouTube]
As you can see below, all of those either don't work, or just fail to embed entirely:
[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy__Jp5 ... BCF4AaABAg[/YouTube]
[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy__Jp5SAtU&t=35s[/YouTube]
[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy__Jp5 ... e=youtu.be[/YouTube]
[YouTube]https://youtu.be/gy__Jp5SAtU[/YouTube]

I may see about fixing it so that the shorten URLs work as well, but I'll have to experiment around with that some.

EDIT:
Okay, I've now added a new bbcode, called YouTubeShort. Basically works the same way as the standard YouTube embed code, only with shortened URLs.

How it works is you essentially do this:

Code: Select all

[YouTubeShort]https://youtu.be/gy__Jp5SAtU[/YouTubeShort]
Which then allows the video to be embedded:
