I never had a single problem my self.

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOmZIu_y1js[/youtube] = Wont work.. Why? HTTPS, remove the S
Some YouTube video with some special characters cannot be embedded at all on PHPBB, I have no example ATM.

So look, its very simple... you need to make sure these three are ok.
http:// (Protocol) | www.youtube.com/ (URL) | watch?v=FOmZIu_y1js (Vidéo ID) ..
HTTPS, youtu.be, and not FOmZ-Iu-y1js (Example!) wont work.

Also if there is any extra stuff in the Video ID, you need to remove it.

Should be:

Code: Select all

Curiously i'm using ABP too and have no problems. ^^
But yeah, sometimes it hide attachments and other stuff like that on certain websites.
And it can also prevent going back in history (back arrow), amazon.com-.ca,-.co.uk and the OpenELEC forum are doing this, need to keep ABP disabled for those websites.

Just for the sake of sharing it, you can also use filters.
https://adblockplus.org/en/filters

If you want, you can use a blacklist instead of a whitelist. So ABP is enabled just for the websites you want by default.

Code: Select all

@@$document,domain=~youtube.com|~ebay.com
In this example, only youtube and ebay.com have ABP enable by default.
And then, you can enable it for the websites you want the same way you can disable it for some websites in whitelist mode.

This is excellent for novices, elderly people, ect.
