So I see a lot of complaints about the youtube embedding, or rather, attempts to do so.
 
Here's a scoop:
 
In this version of the forum, the newer youtube   (youtu.be) short cut is not recognized.
In regular browser usage, when you click on a link with that domain name, google's servers do a translate to a full youtube link.
 
eg.
 
This link:
 
https://youtu.be/e4Ao-iNPPUc
 
translates to:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4Ao-iNPPUc
 
and if you put the full link inside a youtube directive, it will embed your video.

real embedding results in:

As you can see above, literally copying your link and tags above didn't work for for some reason.

Because there is formating to change the colors in his. If you copy and paste. Whiles its selected click the little eraser in the upper left corner of the reply box and the link should turn to black text and post correctly.

I don't remember using colors.
I used "code" tags to show the underlying tags without interpretation.

And I didn't talk about the code tags.
