You can still convert new videos to old links.

I was going to try and embed a video a while back, and I discovered that youtube had deprecated an old method of embedding (Iframes ?) that used to be easy.

I found some info saying that you just had to do x, and y and it would still work, but I couldnt get it to do so in the few minutes I had at that time.

If anyone knows a simple way to embed videos, please post it and we can put it in a sticky or something, I see phpBBv3 has instructions for creating a custom BBcode to do it, but custom BBcodes arent on phpBBv2. I could probably hack up something if someone can tell me a way of embedding that does work.

is iframe in the allowed html list?
google share button is giving this

code:
<iframe width="704" height="396" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/kfvxmEuC7bU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



Danies one generates code like
code:

<object width="475" height="381"><param value="http://www.youtube.com/v/kfvxmEuC7bU&showsearch=0&rel=0&fs=1&autoplay=0&ap=%2526fmt%3D18" name="movie" /><param value="window" name="wmode" /><param value="true" name="allowFullScreen" /><embed width="475" height="381" wmode="window" allowfullscreen="true" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/kfvxmEuC7bU&showsearch=0&fs=1&rel=0&autoplay=0&ap=%2526fmt%3D18"></embed></object>

I'd also like to see the link behaviour changed to allow me to open links in new tab with a middle click... such a pain!

as long as you've backed everything up... you should be fine! don't forget to tick "Add CREATE TABLE lines" (not ticked by default) when creating the MySQL backups... or you'll have a shit time manually re-creating every table if you ever need to use it

This has been 6 months. How would everyone feel about the Robowars.com.au page as a front page?
