It's been a while since youtube started using https as default, and that seems to have broken(not really) the forum software's youtube plugin.

So anything that starts with https turns into a link stead of being parsed and getting embedded like the old http.

I don't think it'll be hard to tweak/update at all.

youtu.be is a mobile link and it's something that the forum can't support as is. We may be able to convert the youtu.be variable to youtube.com but there's no guarantee that it'll work.

Awful nice, very kind, much moderate, doge. It's not much of a trouble, but things that should be able to be automated should be automated...

http://youtu.be/ links seem like they're default sharing link when you press the 'share' button from youtube. The link I posted above was done on a PC through chrome.

It should be noted the variable that follows after http://youtu.be/ is the unique ID for the video. So all that needs to be done is parse/truncate/replace http://youtu.be with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=, or rather, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=


ex)
http://youtu.be/2Z4m4lnjxkY

I think a simple hack could work if it can be done.
