On many YouTube videos, the old embed code is no longer available as an option for those wishing to post those videos in WU (and other)
forums. The problem is, some forums—including WU's—are not yet able to properly show videos posted with the new embed code. To get around that problem, I created this very simple form to convert the new YouTube video embed code into the old style still needed by WU and those other forums.
Simply paste the new embed code from any YouTube video in the top box, press the "Coderize!" button, highlight and copy the contents
of the bottom box, then paste those contents into WU's comment box.
A couple of notes:
There is no error-correcting functionality built-in here. Because of that, I can't guarantee that the generated code will necessarily
work. Use at your own risk.
Any change(s) either YouTube or WU make to their pages will probably render the code generated by this form unusable until I can
adapt this page to keep up with any such changes. So, again, use at your own risk.
There's always a possibility that a badly-formatted piece of embed code could screw up the forum page. As with anything else, then, use this at your own risk.
Please let me know via WU mail if you're having problems with this page, and I'll try to make it right.
