I couldn't resist using that great line, Ricky Ricardo used when there was a problem on the "I Love Lucy" show, as my subject line.

I found this problem with CreativeCow's "My profile" page: I put in my links to YouTube as requested:





,




,






Because these are Youtube's "Share" links. I don't know what they are smok'in over at YouTube, but youtu.be really?

Your software changes them to:

http:/fLzKL2ruGBs,
http://Yd2Jzi3GGwE,
http://T20l82o2t30

Which will not work in this century.

Soooo, CreativeCow.net has been around for many years and has thousands of members. I'm the First guy to notice this?

Just Saying...

Hello Jim,

Take a look now. I believe it should be fixed. Thanks for pointing this out!

Hi Abraham,

Nope. It still looked the same when I went to edit it. You need to change the format from "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" to the "http://www.youtu.be" code. You can't embed the "watch?v=" anymore. Some videos will not load because they are restricted to run "locally," on YouTube.com domain only.

Note: When I posted this to you, I listed the links using the old "watch?v=" format and the did not work on your site. Only the http://www.youtu.be links showed the video.

The YouTube reference URL there is simply a reference for people to know what to put into the field. YouTube still uses that URL format. The idea is to put the YouTube video code in there, not the embed code.
