  • hi,
    essential plug in – cant make a site without it!

    but:
    it appears there is a change in youtube’s player & link protocol… for example, the way we link a tube vid as “http://www.youtube.com/watch/v/34t-pjKKZSQ” no longer works…

    copy/paste that link into a browsers, you’ll get a 404. but use http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34t-pjKKZSQ and it comes up…

    is there a way to link youtube for shadowbox after this new change?

    additionally, there is a conflict between shadowbox 3.0.3.2 and the latest version of tubpress… if 3.0.3.2 is used tubepress cant play vids – if using the older version of shadowbox 3.0.0.3 tubepress is fine – but the youtube issue persists…

    help!
    thanks

  • The problem is that the url is actually http://www.youtube.com/v/34t-pjKKZSQ

    Notice the lack of “/watch” in that url.

    I am unaware of any issues with tubepress but will try to look into that conflict in the coming months.

    ah haaa!
    it’s the little things…

    but yeah – def an issue with tubpress and the most recent shadowbox..

    thanks!

    Your plugin rocks. Been using it for a while now. Can’t seem to figure out what happened to YouTube links on a mobile site. They used to open in YouTube when my blog (http://y2kemo.com) was viewed on a mobile site. Now YouTube links are opening (unsuccessfully)in a shadowbox. Not sure of the cause. Here are a few possible conflicting plugins: smartYoutube, WP-SuperCache, and WPTouch iPhoneTheme. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
