Dear Wizzleys,

some of you may have noticed a problem with certain YouTube videos: they won't allow embedding on Wizzley pages.

This happens because our Wizzley servers are located in Germany. When YT videos allow embeds only through US sites, we can't use them.

However, I think this refers to only a small number of videos.

Additionally, always enter the video's URL from the browser address bar in your module.

The short code from the "Share" pop-up will not work.

[ Edit by Simon: Short URLs are working now! ]

Thanks for the heads up. I always forget to add YouTube videos to my articles. Must remember that.

Michey - Hans will fix it so we can use the video short code in the "Share" pop-up under the video on the YT site.

Until then, use only the browser bar address in our YT module.

If this still doesn't work, look for my explanation in the top post of this thread.

Short Youtu.be URLs are working as of now :))
