Is there anyway to embed YouTube videos for ipad users? It works in most forums (I think it used to work here too?), but here they are all just blank posts.

(Brian is going to snark on Apple, right? Do I get a cookie?)

ETA: even strange. Imogen kindly fixed my yard post, and it showed up blank for me. But, after I did quote to see what code she used, it showed up on the regular post with the first frame and a play button, then it switched to a black screen with sound.

Weird. I'm guessing this is iOS bugginess (or Google being evil) and not a forum issue.

I've had the same problem since a couple software updates ago, lw. I did some googling about it and it seems to be something other people have problems with on other forums (fora?), but no one seems to have a solution. I've just started quoting posts with embedded videos and then cutting and pasting the address. But if there was a better solution for this, that would be great.

Yeah, I mostly just scroll past embedded videos. Lepelaar is smart.

I've made some minor changes to how Youtube URLs are parsed. Can someone see if that's an improvement or not?

Nope. Still not working for me.

Whoa! That seems to have fixed it for me! Thanks, Brian! I hope that's done the trick for lw and other ipad folks too!
