I've upgraded our Confluence test instance to 4.3.7, and am testing the YouTube URL in a new document.
The Widget Connector Macro doc mentions that I need to copy the long URL, under Share, Options, Long Link.
The problem is that when I click Share, I can not see "Options". Has this moved recently?
confluence 5.2.5 here.
I was confused as to why the embedded videos weren't being rendered within my Chrome browser but were displaying properly in FF.
Turns out, as my site is SSL-enabled, not only do the video URLs have to be the long version but they also have to be HTTPS! I guess chrome is blocking non-https iframes from being loaded within an https page.
out of interest, I copied the URL under "Share", which is in the exact format the Widget Connector Macro doc says WON'T WORK:
Note: You must use the long YouTube URL. The shortened URL (like this one:
http://www.youtu.be/<video_key>) does not work in the widget connector.
However, I paste the URL in (i.e. http://youtu.be/0QhTcMrWBp8), and it works perfectly.
Perhaps the Confluence doc needs to be updated,....
btw,... I am running Firefox 18.0.2
I added a YouTube video in Confluence 4.3.7 and click on that button in the very right side like this ".<" and I was able to see the Option button, but actually is a dropdown menu, as you can see here:
May I ask you, which version did you come from? That way I can test in my local environment to see if there's something different.
