Looks like

-quoting a YouTube vid post removes the embed.
-editng a YouTube vid post removes embed

It appears that your original embed is malformed, but ignoring that, I suspect that <iframe> elements are removed when posting (which makes a lot of sense). Edits/quotes would presumably need to scan through the HTML and convert the iframe back into forum markup, which probably isn't a priority.

Behodar: It appears that your original embed is malformed,

The YouTube tag was used every time. I paid no attention to case so perhaps there is case sensitivity somewhere.

Makes sense. I forget I'm editing html sometimes.

You're also using it wrong.

 

You need to add the end part of the URL encased in the YouTube tag.

 

Where wyK7YuwUWsU = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyK7YuwUWsU

 

Also, we really don't want to deal with the trainwreck of people quoting YouTube videos over and over again. As for the editing aspect it is because the YouTube tag embeds an iframe into your post server-side. Now, it'll be a massive security risk if somebody were to add an iframe themselves.

 

It is pretty simple to just add the YouTube tag in again.

Curious did you get a MIME error and a hard time editing a post you had already added YouTube tags to?

As that's what I struck after the ssl changes

Never seen that. Maybe it's a windows thing.
