    why do some of the YT links not embed properly in threads? ive used the actual link as well as the "share" link from the video itself.

    Delete the "S", in https, but even then it doesn't always work (especially with the NSFW tags).

    Thanks for reporting this, I didn't realize there were problems. I'm working on updating our media embedding system now. It looks like the coder for our original plugin isn't active any more, so bear with me while I figure out the best solution.

    along the same topic, they don't embed at all when posting from mobile (in my experience at least)

    ive been having this problem since you guys switched to the new site format but i was able to get videos embedded by going into the YT user's profile and searching for the video or by searching YT for the video. some vids just dont work at all (even when embedding is enabled by the YT author.) before the switch i was able to put in any form of the YT link and still get it to embed.

    thanks.
