This is getting really frustrating. Even after all the tutorials and helpful advice, I still can't embed youtube videos, and I don't know why.

For instance, i'm about to attempt to embed this video of darth vader on a unicycle. I've copied everything after the = sign and have pasted it into the youtube widget, which appears as cnVjkE87FDY.

So why do I get this every time?



It's really annoying when I want to make a thread and I can't provide video evidence for one reason or another. Is it my browser or some kind of add on that's stopping it? I'm starting to feel like Ranier Wolfcastle on the set of Radioactive man.

"My threads, ze youtube does nothing..." Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: it appears to be working now, but up till now it has never worked, ever. I tried to upload a video on another thread five minutes ago but I still got the same message as always-" an erroe occured, please try again later"

Is it a copyright issue? because it has never worked for me before.

I'm going to try a completely another video entirely to try and replicate the successful result:



Okay, that worked as well. But A lot of videos I try to embed don't work, and I use the same process every time. Why is that?

I've just tried that video in Youtube (extracting the number from your post).
I got the response that the video does not exist.
Perhaps you mistyped the number, or the video has been deleted since you took the details.

Are you trying to copy the video's number from a mobile device?

There are no results for a search on YouTube for the ID "p2BLqpZiKY". In this case you may have not captured the whole thing…

In the others I have the same problem from time to time. Resetting my browser clears it (temporarily).

The things we endure for web.

No, I'm on PC and I use the same process every time. I Copy and paste the video ID just like the tutorials say to do, but up till now it has never worked and I don't know why because it's a straightforward process and no one else seems to have a problem.

Let's see
If I have a YouTube link where are something like this in the address
/watch?v=JFCeEUimG54&list=PLoaHt6cNwCxKZSgF8pAz52JQz_b_eAByK
you need to pick the line after v= and skip all including = or any other special charachters from the end of line
Then i get the youtube letters that i need which in this case would be JFCeEUimG54



everything between v= and = or & focus on special charachters , is what is needed

From what I have seen all YouTube videos have a 11 character ID, the one that is not working has only 10 characters.

What was the title of that video?
