However for other videos where there is no alternative there is nothing I can do at times to make the video show, rather than the link, and I follow all the instructions carefully.

The fact that it won't show in the preview but will in the post is part of the software...

As to no alternative, there is...Simply write it up as specifically mentioned in the OP...

I think that YouTube is fiddling with their software and formats too. I'm getting the impression that they're going to try to disallow embedding afore long.

The app thats added to the forum is also an issue. On my forum I have the Vbulletin Icon that - looks like afilm strip. I don't have many problems with links. I believe the issue is more wiith the application - add on to vbulletin that lets you paste the youtube code directly into the post.

Here's why...

The software will embed the videos for "youtube.com"...not "youtu.be.com" or any other variation.

Also, the address should contain "watch" in the address instead of words like "mobile" or "nomobile"...
You should also remove any crap after the apersand symbol (&) and the symbol itself...

So THIS won't work...

Yeah, it took me awhile to figure this out. Those "imbed" codes are misleading.
All you need to do is copy and paste the address from the browser bar at the top, and it will direct link to the video.
That is what you're referring to, right?

MOST of the time that's true...I've seen exceptions, that's why I put in the specific way of coding...

Yes it is. If you look at allot of forums there is alink to add the video in the form of an icon in the post display ledger. Like if your posting an image, you go to the icon and it brings up a window.
What we have here is an add on - not apart of the original vbulletin forum software. I have found though it has bugs. Sometimes when you post a video it makes it a link instead of displaying it, not sure why.

In some cases, some YouTube videos aren't set to be embeddable, but in other cases, it's usually what CNRedd said earlier.
