So far as I know, phpBB boards have a simple way to enable admins to give posters the ability to embed youtube links, so that the video thumbnail etc. show up when linked to.

I can't think of a reason to not do this - it's extremely unlikely that a youtube thumbnail will contain any dodgy imagery. The main argument would be that admins haven't got time to uhm admin it. In which case - as you were.

Having swum in the sewer that is “last post wins” and paddled through the RhinoCZ thread I can’t think of anything that you could post in a youtoob link that could be worse.

As far as I can remember, this forum is built off phpbb 2 and has been very heavily customised.

I expect phpbb 3 (i.e. the one after the version this is based on) came out before YouTube was even a thing, so it certainly won't be a case of ticking something.

I doubt it'll happen!

It's possible to post links with thumbnails manually...

Example:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p3Fp43jJuo&ab_channel=RRCRestoration
The video reference is therefore 9p3Fp43jJuo

Thumbnail exists here:
Code:
https://img.youtube.com/vi/<video id>/default.jpg

Example:
https://img.youtube.com/vi/9p3Fp43jJuo/default.jpg

You could put it together as two pieces:
Code:
[img]https://img.youtube.com/vi/9p3Fp43jJuo/default.jpg[/img]
[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p3Fp43jJuo&ab_channel=RRCRestoration[/url]

https://img.youtube.com/vi/9p3Fp43jJuo/default.jpg
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p3Fp43jJuo&ab_channel=RRCRestoration

Or combine like this:
Code:
[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p3Fp43jJuo&ab_channel=RRCRestoration][img]https://img.youtube.com/vi/9p3Fp43jJuo/default.jpg[/img][/url]

And you can get a bigger thumbnail with:
Code:
https://img.youtube.com/vi/<video id>/hqdefault.jpg

BCF doesn't.

BCF predates YouTube. Laughing
