XF 1.4 Don't show youtube video, just the link


Formerly mugtree
So on a thread i want to show a youtube url, so the actual url can be copied and pasted. However after posting the video shows embedded into the post. How do I stop that please?

You can delete the media bb code site entry for YT.

Be aware though that any existing embedded videos using the media=youtube tag will break.
