While there could be a workaround which would block all iframes except youtube's, it isn't worth doing at this time on the current version of the totjo website.

I'm not sure why youtube decided to use iframes, this is a pain.

So if this is the route they go, what does that mean for us and videos? No go?

Use hacks described in this thread, and post videos as url ( use the forums url or code tags to avoid the auto-transform). Ive had to repair youtube embedding on this version of the site already, next time will be after the yet to be planned upgrade.


Not to derail, but is there any chance of the site getting a shoutbox with that upgrade?
