    The end of Flash. The world is now at the mercy of Ming the Merciless

    Videos with ID's starting with certain letters don't work at WGT Miantiao.

    This has been an issue for over 4 years now WGT!

    Cheers Scott for the corrected upload.

    My favourite Queen track and sci-fi movie. Very relevant in the modern world as it was in the 80s as an analogy for cruel totalitarianism, ideological brainwashing, and the greater good of humanity.

    Ive been back almost a month because Ive got bugger all on, and thought I'd play a bit before the end of WGT.

    They're making it a pain in the bum for Flash players from the latest update till the end of of Flash. RIP

    Here's an appropriate Chinese saying to describe the PCEA version:

    I don't know if that would correct things Paul. The embedding script is bugged.

    The reason the video does not play is because the video ID does not have the required 11 characters.

    Miantiao posted his video with this URL...

    https://youtu.be/
    w4yqm2rmWks

    ...which is fine, nothing wrong with that at all.

    But when he posted his message, the underlying script took that URL and put it into an iframe (html element) to show as a playable video.

    Here is the code for that iframe element...

    <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/
    4yqm2rmWks
    ?rel=0&amp;color=white" width="440" height="248" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

    ...if you look at the two ID's that I've highlighted, you should be able to see a difference. That missing 'w' is the reason the video throws up an error when you try to play it, the ID has been mangled by the video embedding script.

    This will happen to any video whose ID begins with a 'w','a','t','c','h' or 'v' (upper or lowercase).

      Well the video loads up just fine with your corrected url . In my website . Using the YouTube loader .

    But not here in WGT .The insert media doesn't seem to like this video .

    Maybe I didn't make myself clear.

    WGT's video embedding script is bugged.

    Ah So I See .Said the blind man .

     

    Maybe it has to do with that particular video . Yancy's YouTubes seem to work.

     

     

    Mine seem to work too .

      When I had my CC . I posted dozens of WGT youtube replays . I would say that 25 % of them would not post in WGT . They were just fine on my website .

       Another mystery it would appear .
