Mixed Content; YouTube Embeds Broken

Recommended Posts

Since the forums were updated to default to HTTPS (yay!), it appears that the functionality that manages embedding YouTube videos from their direct URL is broken; at least in certain browsers like Chrome that will not load insecure content when the initial pageload/request is performed over HTTPS.


I'm not super familiar with VB's framework, but it appears that whatever functionality it is that replaces a YouTube URL with an embed does not function properly when the YouTube URL uses HTTPS. When HTTP is used, the embed works, but the video is not playable due to the mixed-content error.
