Adding YouTub with BuddyPress Activity Plus

When I add a link from Youtube then click 'Add Video' it goes blank but shows a recent update was made. I can add images and link to the page fine. I was hoping this would show the video embedded.

    Greetings aceboonkk,

    Thank you for your additional feedback, it is greatly appreciated.

    Now that I got an idea of what you were doing it was time to set out testing.

    As shown on my test production site:

    In the first/top video, I was able to embed the video using the video button using just the YouTube video URL supplied right below the video when I click share.

    In the second video I chose link using the same link above and it just made a link to the YouTube video.

    Please advise as to your results with this new information.

    Cheers, Joe

    Greetings aceboonkk,

    Thank you for the screen shot and additional input, it is certainly appreciated.

    I do not know of any setting that would affect this however it is possible for a plugin/theme conflict of some sort.

    With that said, lets go into full blown trouble shooting mode because it appears there may be some conflict here and one way to find out conclusively.

    Standard plugin trouble shooting protocol - first to switch to the Twenty Eleven theme just long enough to check for the problem - if the problem still exists next involves deactivating all plugins except the plugin in question and then see if the issue still exists.

    If it does not, then you want to activate plugins one at a time testing in between to see if the issue returns. Even when you find one plugin, it may be in your interest to deactivate the problem plugin and continue testing the rest of the plugins to insure no others are also conflicting.

    You will know the conflict when the issue returns and which plugin(s) you activated that cause the issue.

    Please advise if there are any plugin conflicts and if so what the plugins are that are conflicting.

    Cheers, Joe

    When the video link is clicked a text field appears for the URL. When the link is placed in the field and preview is pressed it shows fine. When I click 'add video' the status is posted blank.

    I've discovered now, however, I can paste the link into the regular status field and click 'Post Update' without bothering with the linked icons or other fields at all. The youtube link is embedded without any problem.
