[youtube] and [tweet] replaced by [media]

Post by Steven » Fri Sep 22, 2017 6:49 pm

Hi all,

Our well known [youtube] and [tweet] bbcodes have been replaced with a more potent [media] bbcode
Apart from fixing a long-time issue with the youtube code, the new [media] code supports content from numerous sites.

Some supported urls:

Is this only from now onwards or you could put Youtube video on full screen before?

Youtube video embedding has worked for years now.
Although, there was a bug introduced somewhere last year, which made it a bit more difficult.

However, please use the media code. youtube and tweet codes are deprecated.
