New Youtube Embed options

Postby AUbicycles » Fri Mar 08, 2013 8:33 pm

Window8 seemed to be having problems showing youtube and as a result a new embed option has been created that should work properly. (Windows.. the invoice is in the post).

The old method is actually still valid and won"t be removed though this button option (in the row of grey buttons) is removed.

The new methoded uses this tag:

The video size is also a bit bigger that with the old embed option.

Here is the new code in it's glory




and for comparison, the old code

Code: Select all
