Technical Forum issue: video embedding, rarely, does not work. (Bug?)


Bug in recognizing/using URLs of YouTube addresses? (Is there any logic in it?)

I was unable (September 2020) to upload and embed a YouTube video into a Forum post. I left it for a while, thinking I was doing it wrong and didn't understand. (I have now removed the temporary test-post). Then I did some experimenting. It turned out that the Forum editor DOES convert most URL addresses and (rarely) does NOT convert some others.
I then deleted my own video from YouTube and re-uploaded it. With automatically another YouTube link. The new link was recognized and embedded.
(See my recent post: "Corona Chorale - Polyphonic piece for piano 4 hands - Alpho van Cets").

Below are a few random links that DO work:

&ab_channel=AlphovanCets       &list=PLGmxyVGSCDKvmLInHxJ9VdiwEb82Lxd2E&index=5


and others that DO NOT work/embedd:

My former video-link (3 "copies" - now empty - shown here for the address text):

  • &ab_channel=AlphovanCets

Some random link I found:

  • How to RECORD AUDIO with CUBASE and OBS

Thanks for the many examples. I've had similar issues. What solved it for me was to use the link provided by YouTube's Share button under each video. Copying a link from the web browser seems to cause problems.
