Apparently as of the 20th of April, Google removed support for v2 of the YouTube API and switched over to v3. That means any YouTube video embedded just goes to a "device support" message and the original link to the video is lost. Is there any way to update to v3 of the API on this site so that we can still embed YouTube videos?

When embedding a video on the forums, use the Embed URL button above the emoticons and remove the s in the HTTPS of the link of the video you wish to embed.
