Youtube issues using Google Chrome on this forum
« on: August 15, 2016, 12:38:38 AM »
I have reported the issue to Google Chrome but if you are having the same issue, then please report it to them by clicking on the box at the top right and going to Help and then reporting it. Firefox works fine.

The issue I see is that youtube videos are only showing up as black boxes instead of videos. I am having the same issue on another forum that I am on that uses a different software and a member there also reported having the same issue and others chimed in too, so it is a known issue.

Just letting you all know that it is not the forum, it is Google Chrome since the last update they did.

Thank you Tom, it seems to be a known issue, why it happens to some people and on some forums and not others I have no idea, the other forum it is happening on is a VBullitin forum, so maybe IPB does not have that problem.

I believe the problem has been fixed either by Google Chrome or by a recent Microsoft update, can anyone not see youtube's properly displayed? James, is it fixed for you too?

Be careful. Someone may get butthurt because there is a pistol shown in the YouTube preview

Jack,

The gun does not bother me, but that is just my honest opinion.  Which probably does not mean crap to some people.  Oh I meant to say manure!
