✅ No Preview of YouTube videos with normal link possible

It is no longer possible to preview a YouTube video with the normal browser link.
In the post only the normal link is shown and in the editor preview I get the following message

It is only possible with the short link https://youtu.be/6NXnxTNIWkc


I have the same problem.

The first time it happens to me was one week ago.

As I don’t post videos a lot I first thought I made something wrong (and that’s because I didn’t mentioned it earlier), but as I am not the only one :thinking:

It makes no different whether I use my PC or my Android phone (both Chrome Browser, just if it’s necessary to know).

There’s a discussion on this here:


It seems Google has made changes that is preventing the oneboxing to work as expected.

As @anon12838227 mentioned, the Discourse team is working on a fix, but I don’t know when that will reach us as we don’t run this forum on the bleeding edge version of Discourse, but on the stable one (which is released less frequently).

Thank you @paulo and @anon12838227

So we have to use the short link - that’s okay.
But you just have to know that…

A fix for this has been implemented and it should reach us when the next stable version is release which is likely to be only next month. If there’s a workaround (using the short url), it’s preferable to try to use that for the moment as the alternative would be to switch (temporarily) to a beta version which can come with a different set of problems.
