    What we changed with Youtube links is that they don't automatically call out to YouTube servers when you load the page. This was done for privacy since every page you load with a YT embed shares your IP with Youtube. Now you need to actively click on the image to load the video.

    Of course, this shouldn't be causing @Witch Doctor 01 an issue posting these links so I'm not sure what else might be going on.

    Yes. Link #2 is a FB embedded video and you have FB blocked

    Actually, this is good to see YD. I didn't realize how many people had blockers running and didn't realize something like a FB video would be blocked.

    Need WD to post a link

    I made a change to the embed code so a page with a bunch of YT embeds doesn't send a bunch of call outs to Google but it shouldn't have affected posting links

    Code:
    <iframe width="500" height="300" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/{$id}?rel=0&autohide=1&controls=2&iv_load_policy=3" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
