On August 8th and 11th Kyle posted youtube links instead of embedding the videos. This conspiracy goes all the way to the top.

On my laptop youtube videos only show up as a skinny black box. Anyone else have that same issue?

But seriously, how the hell do you post a YouTube video these days?

Edit: I got one to post by copying the link from Explorer (not Chrome). Maybe that will help someone.

you have to use the right link.

the usable YT links are always https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2ZtUetXlXk
look at that formatting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= and then random characters. the random characters is the unique ID for the video

to use the YT embed feature here you must that full link.

if you hit the "share" button on youtube, youtube gives you a link like this https://youtu.be/D2ZtUetXlXk

not the same thus won't work. if you try to submit a YT at a certain time, it will not work i.e.https://youtu.be/D2ZtUetXlXk?t=1m33s

that will not work.

use the full link in the browser bar, hit the youtube button, paste the link between the youtube brackets and the video will post
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2ZtUetXlXk becomes

Thanks. Somehow that wasn't working for me in Chrome. Though oddly, just copying from Explorer into a Chrome GRB tab did work.
