In the past when I wanted to show a video in a post I copied the url of the video from Vimeo and pasted it in my post and it would then show as the Vimeo player and could be watched by others from there (or they could link via it to watch it on Vimeo)

Now when I copy a link to a forum post it just stays as that - a link.
An example here

I tried using both embed codes that Vimeo gives but they just stay as a string of code in the post. When I asked Vimeo via their help forum they said that something this end must have changed.

It isn't terribly important, just annoying because many readers won't bother going to Vimeo to watch the videos.

I also noticed that people could just give a link to the video and the video would be playable directly from the thread. However, I've never put a link to a video on the forum before.

Testing a video:

YouTube - CRUEL FAKE GRENADE JOKE FOR BUFFALO CREW IN IRAQ

That works just fine when I tested it before posting. So, I'm guessing it has to do with your link that your provided for them.

Maybe the new software That translates the link is doing something you would need to see the admins to see if that was the case
