Thanks for the reminder. The problem with Chrome and YouTube should be fixed now. I've only tested it on one version of Chrome and one version of Safari, but I'm sure someone will tell me if I have broken other versions or other browsers.

EDIT: Tested on FireFox on macOS as well. Works great.

It was fubar'd until an hour ago. Your post reminded me that it was something I was supposed to fix.

Does this mean that we still need to use the [URL] BBCode or is no longer required?

Should not be required. Just paste a bare link into a post and it will automatically turn it into a viewable video.

Thanks for that... I never had the problem of seeing videos or pictures, as I use Firefox, but I notice this post HERE from jimc and that's why I was asking...

Thanks for pointing that out. I've posted an addendum to Jim's guidance.

Two-Snaps-Up to Jess! Now, About Those Ads...
I'm old enough to remember the really old spots: some have clearly aged better than others. (But some of the print ads based on these commercials are priceless.)

As for the new(er) ones: the first is the funniest, although it kinda-sorta paints the average ZX/Ninja pilot as an advantageous jerk. Also liked the "lightning-before-thunder", "high-five" and lone-speed-camera spots. (Kaw clearly knows their audience, at least outside the States.)

I remember those "Let the Good Times Roll" commercials very well. As I recall, they often ran during NFL broadcasts.
