    Default Cannot embed video on phone

    I have noticed several times that, when on phone, typing the [video] tags does not result in an embedded video within my post but in creating a link to the original video.

    Like so:

    Using the "Full site" button on phone does not solve the issue.

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    That url won't show the video on my PC, too. You can try with the one youtube offers in the "share" button (the one with the youtu.be url).

    However, I noticed that the forum automatically edits the tags when posting a youtube video. Look at the tags I get on that video (they actually use [ ] instead of ( ), but I can't post two video tagged contents in one post):

    Code:
    (video=youtube_share;SX4dYyvVMA0)https://youtu.be/SX4dYyvVMA0(/video)
    They comprise part of the URL.


    I also tried with the normal video url, the forum edits the opening tag this way:

    [video=youtube;iB752TiNepA] etc. (it's a different video, so different url part in the tag).

    Change the m in the URL to www.

    e.g.
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SX4dYyvVMA0
    to
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SX4dYyvVMA0

    That works. I am not sure where that m came from but thank you.

    Mobile. You copied the URL from the mobile phone website version of YouTube.

    It directs to the mobile site, because you were viewing the site on a mobile device (cell phone/portable/handy, tablet, etc.).

    Ah yes, that makes sense.
