I don't seem to be able to see links/ videos on the forum

Hey guys,

I wonder if anyone can help with this. When I browse the forum, I see numerous references to links, videos, audio, etc. that people seem to have uploaded to their posts. I can't see any of them though. I just see empty white space where I assume the links or uploads are. Anyone know how to resolve this? I tried different browsers with no change, and looked in "Settings" on Google Chrome and didn't see anything that was obviously causing this. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

As a workaround, hit "quote" on any post where you don't see the embedded video.
Then you will see the url of the video, which you can copy/paste in another browser tab.

hey folk, sorry for the delay in a solution to this.

I think the cause is the fact that the video embed solution we were using for years stopped working in the newer versions of Chrom. I changed the embed solution to a new one, but any posts that are still using the old solution will not work.

I think the solution is to update all existing posts manually in the database, but I want to do this wehn I have enough time to make backups and take my time as I need to make sure I don't mess up the database :)

So thanks your patience with this. I hope to have it fixed in the coming days...

ok, all is fixed now... both video and youtube bbcodes are working and all past videos should now be displaying...
