Description

I subscribe to http://www.akff.net/forum/ and http://www.kfdu.com.au/forum/. Both are phpBB sites

BACKGROUND

Discussion on those websites sometimes involves the linking of youtube videos. When creating links to youtube videos, https is not permitted. Youtube URLs need to be modified by the removal of the 's' from a link. For example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCG-b46fdqg

needs to be modified to

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCG-b46fdqg

to enable linking. This is obviously not an HTTPS issue but demonstrates that the site does not handle https content.

PROBLEM

With https everywhere enabled, youtube videos posted by others are not visible. Instead of the video, white space is displayed.

Chrome Version 2014.26.6
