    I noticed when posting in http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=6615 that youtube links will still show the video box to view directly from the forum even when contained within the forums url code.

    I don't know if anyone was aware of this prior?

    I didn't edit the page to fix it so you can see what's happening, sort of. But posting the youtube link into the [*url=xxx]link[*/url] the vid box comes up instead of just a hyper link.

    You can instead use [.code][.url]*youtubelink*[./url][./code]
    Code:
    [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rg-YFRFj8g0[/url]
    But yeah, when you do it in [.url]*link*[./url], it should become a link instead of video.

    Yea, that kinda defeats the point of making a simple link using url forum code. Might as well just link the vid in it's preview box.
