View Full Version : New Problem: Youtube tags do nothing

I've come across this problem recently. I already know how to make youtube videos work, so I don't know what's happening.

I put the / instead of = and use the Youtube tags, but something keeps going wrong.

It's working because I have Firefox's Youtube downloading thing and it displays the FLV tag, but the video itself won't show up.

Does anyone know what's going on?

Seems like it does work?

Can you type the exact code you used without actually making the video work?

checking it out now, stand by.

UPDATE: confirmed, works fine here.

Make sure you use the video code shown in the YT page url or embed code, not one found in any 3rd party downloaders.

Now I've figured it out! IT's the v/ code and that's all. Then I use the youtube tags.

Thanks for your help.

yeah the v/ code is for use in your profile, not in a post with the youtube tags.
