    I ask this on a topic so we can all know at the same time instead of us all burying you in a flood of help requests.

    Thanks kindly -Doug of meninlove

    I've been wondering the same thing. Maybe it has something to do with with reducing bandwidth usage. Seems a shame though, since video is something kind of expected on a social website.

    I sent a polite request to Admin inviting them to join in. They may be very busy though - it's a big site.

    I think embedding has stopped. I mentioned it in a few previous posts in the last several days. Not being smart about these things, I can't guess if it has something to do with RJ, or with YouTube. I do note YouTube changed some of their controls recently.

    I would like to have direct YouTube embedding return. Chris?

    Thank goodness. I don't know why some of you post the mega HD size versions of the video. That shit slows down the page loads.

    Here's a feature request:
    To embed videos, it would be nice if you could just post the direct youtube link. Then the link would automagically grab the embed code and appear in the post. If any of you have a Wordpress blog, you'll know what I mean.

    You need Flashblock.
    That would defeat the purpose, because then the videos would not be able to be watched at all.
    Having a couple videos in a thread is no problem, but having several of them - especially when using public or other slow internet - is very annoying. It would be nice to just click a link to watch one at a time, instead of having them all load at once...especially when someone turns a on in the embed code.

    So I may be in the minority, but I support the idea of blocking the embed function in threads.

    I've used Flashblock before. But it got tedious turning it on and off every time I come to this site.

    It's probably because people tend to post too many vids in a single thread and often times get repeated when readers "quote" their vids thereby stretching out pages.

    I tried to post a video here. No response.

    Probably a bug in the RJ engine.

    Hi guys,

    I have no idea why youtube videos aren't working but I'll take a look at it right now.

    Here's my first test:



    Well that didn't work so well.

    And here's my next test on the development version of the site with the fix. If this works, I'll put it to the live site. For all of you Lady GaGa fans out there:

    Sorry for the inconvenience guys.
