    Why should this be the top priority? Isn't it ticket #79 in the assigned list??
    Can we please not just fix the new issues, but try to get to some of the ones that are 2 years old or older?

    Just trying to help out.

    Just a reminder, it isn't just youtube videos that stopped working but also other media links like soundcloud.

    They are among us!

    As cgregory points out, the reason why this will likely get a priority push is that the issue does not appear to actually just be YouTube videos, but the ability to embed anything on the site. This points to the issue being something at the site as opposed to we were simply needing to tweak things in order to get it working with a changed API. Additionally, there are multiple tickets open on this problem as well. Please do not think that just because this is getting a priority that I am just going to absently go around and ignore old outstanding issues. I am still working through both the forum and the Support page looking through the heaps of stuff that is reported and just sitting. Some of this can't be seen, of course, as it is in non-public facing systems.

    No offense to KillerVP, but, IMHO, this is a high priority issue, and not for the youtube stuff. Its the fact that all embedding, be it videos, music, or more importantly, PDFs, is not working. For me, this is an issue as I liked in rule books and such for my players to utilize which they can no longer access

    No offense taken- I agree it is high profile- I took down all my videos publicly due to the issue.
    My statement was that there are a whole lot of issues that have never been addressed, and I don't want them forgotten.

    Don't worry killervp (I know I can say that, but it will take time to prove), I will not be letting items slip through the cracks. Got some things I am working on to get even more efficiency in place too, more on that coming soon!

    I know it has been said that this has a high priority, but, seeing how it is an issue which has severly impacted my sites, I'm gonna keep popping in to see if there are any updates :)

    So, I saw the email has been 'fixed' and caused some other issues as well. But for me, this issue is more important (I understand it might not be for everyone). So, do we have any updates?

    They said they were working on the email first, and I hope they fix all the things that are mysteriously broken now after that "fix"

    Just trying to help out.

    We had focus on the email still, new fix in place and seems to be without the other odd issues that came with the first rollout. This should be addressed soon as I will be wrapping it up with the File Storage Locker stretch goal that needs to come out since that Goal is related to media embedding and expanding those options.

    Yep, I'm pestering about this again, but now its not just because my campaign pages look bad without the embedding working (Its not just my credits video, I utilize YouTube to proved the episode theme as well as the individual character themes), but it is now affecting my ability to promote my upcoming campaign to my player.
    See, I create the opening credits not just for fun, but to give the players a hint of what is to come. Embedded in them are possibly villains, possible powers, etc that they might come across. Now, of course, I can share out the YouTube link to them over Facebook or via e-mail, but, isn't the point of OP to make running a campaign easier?
    Now I do have a few months before I really would need this, but, an eta would be greatly appreciated.

    Keryth inspired us to make better videos, which have been languishing in gm secrets with just a link to our youtube channel for months now.
    Would love this to get fixed

    Really Killer? That means alot to me, coming from one of those who inspired me to make my Shadows site what it is today.

    Thank you

    Really- must keep improving, and your vids pushed me.

    I feel you guys, I just pulled my vids entirely on my page since this issue came into play. Since email is still biting us in the rear, as it were, it may still be a little bit yet but it is up there.

    Well, thanks for the update Alex. I'm just starting to get pressure from me players now too...and yes, I've given em the YouTube link, but it being on the site is more convenient for all

    Agreed - mine are far less needed for my campaign than yours, so I get that completely. I've got some news on my plate that I am looking to roll out that should help with this, but I need to get a few more things finalized before I announce anything officially.

    Well, if you guys did something, great alex. If you didn;t, do do ANYTHING. The YouTube embedding is back and functioning again

    Funny- you would think that they would have already announced....
    One down, hundreds to go.
    Mine are fixed as well.

    Does this fix other embedding issues or just YouTube videos?

    Found my answer in another thread, it includes other embedding issues not just YouTube. This also means (to me) that it was an OP fix, so that's a bit of good news I suppose...
  • Unknown
    I am going to have to look into this some. As mentioned in another thread, we just released a fix suggested by Micah for the email that I was about to announce - I was not expecting to hear that embedding was now working again. I will meet with our tech team later tonight to discuss this, but I am shocked to say the least since they didn't report releasing anything related to embedding.

    Even if it got fixed through indavertant tinkering, FIXED is FIXED, I say....and deserving of commendation.

    I just want to understand why that would happen. Tech Team reconfirmed that the items updated should not have impacted video, so it all just seems odd to me. Don't get me wrong, I am not going to look a gift horse in the mouth on this but I still wish I understood what happened.

    Just an FYI, this is not an uncommon result for a codebase that is haphazardly patched together through hacks and "updates" by small dev teams "making do" as opposed to having the project designed thoroughly from the beginning. The entire beast ends up more coding "bondo and duct tape" than should hold together, with tendrils affecting areas that make no sense. For anyone with background in the dev process, be it dev or test, this is a scary reflection of what the software engine has become.

    Note that unexplained fixes can just as easily become unexplained breaks, because changes are made to areas that should have absolutely no bearing to other areas still, for some reason, touch and affect numerous other aspects. This a coder's nightmare in terms of inheriting a codebase.

    So #83 on the assigned list is fixed, inadvertently, but fixed. Hopefully now we can get #1-10 addressed.

    It is indeed broken again, as are the Forums. This is starting to really get on my nerves now, and I don't just mean the YouTube errors. This site is becoming a disgrace very quickly

    So, Forums are fixed. And, we are told, the Email issue is fixed (again). YouTube was fixed and now is broken again. Can we get some infor and an ETA on when this will be back again?
