    Hi there,

    I have recently had an issue pop up with media inserted into posts on my forums, when a link from a source such as youtube is inserted, it correctly encases it in the media tags, however the media displays as completely blank, like so:

    The media tag seems to have been inserted fine:

    I am not sure what could have caused this, I have made no theme updates or changes as of recent, I have moved too a new server, however it has been set up in the exactly same way and everything was directly copied over, I tried updating to 1.2.5 to see if that resolves the issue, but it appears not too

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thank you!

    What is a link to the site? What are your youtube embed codes?

    I'm not sure what you mean by the embed codes, but this is what i see from when I edit a post with a youtube link in [ media=youtube ]mXVGIb3bzHI[ /media ] (I spaced it out to prevent it showing on here)

    ACP -> BB Code Sites -> YouTube -> Embed HTML.

    Those Embed Codes. Do you have a link to a thread with a media code that isn't working?

    Also, please restore the XenForo copyright in your installation if you'd like support. PC me once you've restored it and I shall reopen the thread.

    Thread where the media tag isn't functioning


    There are a lot of videos in that thread, as you can see by the amount of blank spaces

    I will have a go at running that now
