The "[youtube][/youtube]" HTML on phpbb no longer works for me, after using it for the longest time.
I deleted the Adobe Flash plugin from my machine. I use the Firefox browser on top of Ubuntu.
If you had not noticed, there have been a slew of recent news articles like this: Facebook info security chief: 'Death to Adobe Flash'
. For a couple of months now, the Flash plug-in has been been blocked, requiring "activation" for each site where it was used. I had activated it for the endless-sphere forum as "always allow". But it was getting tedious.
So I looked up http://askubuntu.com/questions/562035/a ... s=1|1.3257
and their answer
The best solution to the problem of a vulnerable, out-of-date Flash installation--or even an up-to-date one that works poorly--may be to uninstall Flash entirely. Often it is not needed, as HTML5 has largely taken over. Thus removing Flash is a real solution for many people, and should probably be considered first before moving on to other solutions that attempt to keep Flash installed while maintaining it in a current (or semi-current) state.
Adobe no longer provides support for Linux installations, so getting an 'update" was not plausible - I had done that and had the latest and last version available.
So I uninstalled it. Everything, more-or-less is kosher - I see all videos, including at Youtube. But I just tried to embed a YouTube video at https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... 0#p1072014
and what displays is:
Note that at the source page - http://ecowatch.com/2015/07/14/elon-musk-tesla-model-s/
- what I see is
Same video, on a website displaying it with no plugin, using HTML5, and here on our phpbb based forum. This is a problem for the forum that may be encountered by others. Hope there's a fix to be found.
Update: I found a fix that works. Its the No Flash
Firefox add-on "that replaces embedded YouTube and Vimeo Flash video players on third-party websites by HTML5.
" Note the fact this confirms phpbb youtube tags are calling for Flash or compatible plug-ins (which I don't have) and that HTML5 works great. Someone needs to get fixing the phpbb youtube script.
