Youtube and other links showing up with black crosses???

We all have come accustomed to the well-known "red crosses of death" by now, most usually indicating a bad/disfunctional link.... but as of lately my computer only shows up "BLACK crosses of death" when posting youtube links and such. Perhaps I should like the change of colour of this failure, being a metalhead after all, but no, I don't.

Now I've yet been forced to accept the true TERROR that is Windows8 (), so perhaps that might have something to do with it, but can anyone please instruct me how to make my youtube vids show up again in - among others - my progrock thread? Pulleezzz???

I suspect Windows8. Whoever designed that piece of ultimate garbage trainwreck should be hanged right away.

I had no trouble at all, but I'm on a Mac!

I don't believe anything has changed on that front.

(youtube)video code e.g. dfsjsfn70x(/youtube) but use square brackets instead of curly ones.
