Template talk:YouTube

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki


It appears that this template is no longer working. If it can't be fixed, we may as well remove it from the pages that have it. Thoughts? Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 13:32, January 21, 2016 (EST)

I'll ask Jake if he's familiar with this template and other embedding options. Do you know if we have another template we're using right now to embed videos? ~SuperHamster Talk 14:40, January 23, 2016 (EST)
I don't see one. We are, however, using some .ogg files on music pages, but those are in the minority. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 14:44, January 23, 2016 (EST)
Perhaps we should consider repurposing this template to simply link to the YouTube, similar to how bulbapedia does it? --Jake 10:59, January 24, 2016 (EST)
Yeah, if you know how to do this, it'd be a better solution that replacing all instances of this template with a link to the video. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 13:58, January 28, 2016 (EST)
I dislike double-posting at the best of times, but if there's no opposition, I'll start replacing instances of this template with a link to the video - more useful in my opinion. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 12:10, February 15, 2016 (EST)
I'm not opposed - go for it! I like the template Bulbapedia has, so if we can do something similar, that'd be great. Unfortunately I don't have to time help out for the next couple days, but I can help later this week if there's still work to do then. ~SuperHamster Talk 15:24, February 15, 2016 (EST)
Have we tried upgrading Extension:EmbedVideo to the current version? Special:Version shows we're using V1.0 and the latest version is 2.2.8. This template makes use of #ev which is a parser function which is part of this extension. If upgrading doesn't work I'd be happy to adapt the Bulbapedia template for our own use.
