Default in-line URL to Youtube video breaks formatting

I expect the forum not to process a link I place in [URL] tags.
In thread preview, if I link to a youtube vid in-line, this doesnt happen, but when I post the thread it processes the video and creates a youtube window, breaking formatting.

For example:

turns into


Screenshot of preview

edit: I think this is a VBulletin issue, as this also happened in my same post on CR.net.
Also, I would not expect the item inside the [code] tag to be interpreted - I would expect it to be left as plaintext (but that's less of an issue).


edit2: and the same video in [YT] tags doesnt work for me at all

I've always used the YT tags thusly:



And it imbeds thusly:


I feel like I missed something here, like I didn't understand the question. I should probably be ignored.

you can either paste the full URL without tags.

or just the video ID with [YT] tags.

example usages:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21jbID9pqnc

[yt]21jbID9pqnc[/yt]


if you want to display the URL without embedding the video, then use [noparse] tags, or don't copy the https://


same thing goes for a few other types of embeds: like gifv movies.

Okay, got it. Thanks for the explanation.
Why does preview display differently?

Okay, removing the https: fixes the inline linking.
