External Video files do not show in Preview Window
« on: January 19, 2010, 06:27:34 AM »

When you link to let's say a YouTube video, and then you click on the thumb, it is supposed to open in a preview window. The window opens fine, but then it remains blank, or you get the following message: "Sorry, you are not allowed to view this file".

Below is an example:

If the above works, it means that we have found the problem and fixed it.

For now the workaround is to NOT use the video as a thumb in your post. Let it display the full size. You do this by addin the "type=av" option in your smg tag. Example: [smg id=38 type=av]
