I actually noticed this when the site relaunched, I just figured it would get fixed eventually but alas not. If people are posting videos in comments sections I never see em' and anytime I try to do it it doesn't show up after I post it so I end up just linking to videos instead. If it's part of some new community guidelines where they don't want us posting videos in comments then it's the first I'm hearing about it.

I wanted to post an EB&D clip of the "fixins" conversation so bad after it was uttered on a recent Beast(or Bomb)cast.

I don't think we have changed any rules in this regard; what video were you trying to embed?

@rorie: Nothing too bad, usually I post a ska track from Youtube as a way to welcome back a Beastcast absentee since it's common knowledge that they're obsessed with ska over there ;). Again though as far as I can tell NO ONE can embed videos in comments and if they do, not only do I not see them on my PC but they don't show up on the mobile site either (Dolphin browser on an iPhone8).

Ah, ok, I see now; this works on forums but not in comments. Not sure why that would be but I'll see if someone can look into it.
