I just reported this thread, because despite three refreshes it was that enema video. I am sorry, but it's the admin's or whoever's fault.

What browser were you using? There are issues with YT embeds on some of them, try updating everything.

Actually it wouldn't have happened if he'd used the new embeds because then only one player would be loaded at a time.

And it's not our fault. If you ever witness the phenomenon you can verify yourself the correct video was requested. One can only speculate why they're delivered out of order. I can accept responsibility for not working around the problem sooner. I just mean the root issue is not of our making.

No, there aren't. There are issues with YT embeds on this site specifically, in all browsers.

I've seen it happen on Reddit with RES. Most sites don't request a lot of videos at once because of how wasteful it is, hiding the issue.

I'm not sure how it's not your fault given this appears to happen reliably in multiple browsers but on literally no other site anywhere.

As I said this won't happen on most sites because they don't waste a boatload of bandwidth by loading a bunch of YouTube players that will likely go unused. That part is obviously my fault. However I suspect that rarely (and far from reliably) videos are delivered out of order because there's some race condition in the aggressive network optimisation that YouTube does on their servers.

We process posts only once when they're submitted - there's no code that could separate a video from the rest of the post upon retrieval. It's all one continuous string echoed in its entirety.

Like I said: wait for it to happen, inspect the DOM and witness that the right video was requested; but YouTube delivered the wrong one. Other people have done this. Then explain how it could possibly be my fault. Honestly I'd welcome the opportunity to learn.

I've never really studied maths beyond rote learning for exams and a little applied stuff for my physics undergrad (the purest course being Linear Algebra 101). I never 'felt' anything from my maths education before.

But this video invoked a deep feeling of satisfaction within me. Thankyou.

I realise what I am about to suggest is considered heretical. But wouldn't the tech problems go away if the site switched from Brian? The interface for smartphones here is profoundly antiquated. We all had a good laugh when the r9k raid left because they couldn't work out the site, but maybe they had a point. I'm sure the response will be "fuck you pay me" but my point is that it would surely lead to less labour to maintain.

Then you lack imagination and experience. I'm not promoting change for the sake of change but this site has long running technical problems that there doesn't seem to be the will to stay on top of that I presume would go away if we adopted a system other people are updating and maintaining.

The long running issue described in this thread was fixed last week (if you choose to take advantage of it). The mobile view should get fixed this year. You're probably right about using something else but we just don't want to do it that way.

This is because your ajax php scripts that allow us to do things like hover over post numbers and see the post load HTML. They should be loading JSON and rendering it in the browser. This way we'd have a decent JSON API that I could use to build an actual functional mobile app for this place.

As it is, I can use the thread/post/board ajax PHP files to obtain HTML data to make an app, but frankly it'd be no better than using the side on luddite mode on mobile.

Also by not loading fucking HTML you wouldn't be loading fucking youtube.

You guys do realise that even even if I set youtube embeds to "NONE" in /o/ britfa still loads all the youtube shite and just hides it from me via css?

This is a) not acceptable to any half decent programmer b) a good use of my bandwidth or C) particularly difficult to fix even if you don't want to fuck about with JSON.

Me again,


<iframe id="ytplayer" type="text/html" width="640" height="390" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/yk6wbvNPZW0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
<span class="textembed"><a href="

in my page when I specifically selected no video embedding is just not on chaps. I'm working on a work around right now hold on.

also if the site had a [quote][/quote] feature so that I could paste html without it rendering

A) that shit show wouldn't happen and
B) I wouldn't be able to hack the site with basic XSS (which I haven't ever done but now realize is entirely possible

Following on:

Having the following html code:

<span class="fullembed"><iframe id="ytplayer" type="text/html" width="640" height="390" src="YOUTUBEURL frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br></span>

<span class="textembed"><a href="YOUTUBEURL">YOUTUBEARL</a></span><br>

and then choosing which span to show based on CSS is just ridic.

Sadly I can't find any damn way to disable iplayers for a single site but noscript will allow you to block them for all sites, which will be my workround for now.

It's been a rough day. You should get what I mean though.

It is possible, through a very rough series of configuration changes to the firefox noscript extension to block access to youtube via iframe. If anyone cares I'll try to document them, but I doubt any of you do.

I promise this will be my final wobble on this subject and final post unless someone wants the above-mentioned instructions.

I don't think you understand what just happened. Your HTML was properly escaped. The two links to a YouTube video you posted were detected and triggered the new embed code we've had for two weeks and which solves all the problems you just complained about.

The old method of embedding remains active only temporarily. Here's a new one - just paste the YouTube URL.

Though of course you will find they won't work if you've disabled JavaScript. This use case is unsupported and more of the site will come to rely on JS over time.

Not him, but that player just disappears when I click on it. I've now got sound playing but no visible controls to stop it other than silencing the tab or reloading the page.

I may be wrong about xss, but I think that if I played enough with it I could achieve it. Unless purpz gives me mission with a ##MOD## tag I'm not doing it because unsolicited pentests are a crime and the ony crime I want to commit with Uncle Purpz is consensual buggery in the infamous cottaging toilet beneath the strand in London.


I use noscript and am fairly liberal with whitelisting as long as it's not asdjdklfjklfjklfsjlk.ch or someting.

I do no entirely block frames and I frames.

I added brifa.gs and .jquery.com to my https everywhere enforcement list and everything works fine.

Later I'll pin your https certificate and then I just start enforcing a "only execute javascrpit from secure connections" policy at least for this site.

Obviously, and ironically, I could still get hacked by any Korean 14 yo with access root on jquery.com - buf i you insist on using that shite what can I do?

PS: I'm no real javascript export but

div class="yt-thumbnail" style="background-image:url('youtube-url/jpg');" data-video-id="qVvxjGPq8BY">'

does't look it saves us much bandwidth and makes blocking it via iframe and so on much harder.

I pay have to use fucking tamper data to rewrite britfa.gs responses to rewrite youtube embeds into a fucking clickable link with no preview, so that my computer doesn't access youtube without my permission.

If I embed five videos it's 4.46 MB of network transfer. If I only load the thumbnails it's 138 kB. That's a 97% saving.

Yes and that's great but you can you make those thumbnails not load at all for those of us with "Text Links Only" set in /o/ ?

You can probably do it with two lines of javascript.... if session.options[videoembedding] == thumnails {} else if session.options[videoembedding] == textony.....

Fuck it, I'll knock the code up for you myself when I get a spare minute.

Don't. There's a reason I didn't couple these to /o/ and it's not because I can't write if statements. I may do so temporarily to keep you quiet.

> I may do so temporarily to keep you quiet.

I'll sf u right now, last thing I wan't is to stress you out. Tell me though, is /o/ stuff in PHP and hidden from the javascript layer for security reasons?

In any case blockig I frames and only getting thumbnails is ok for now, it's like I browse in a VM with 2gb ram, I set /o/ to be text only and it still cunts all my ram. You can understand why that might irk a chap off.

Btw I've decided to restart my mirroring projecty of britfa, I won't reveal the domain until I buy it because it'll be ace.

Also this isn't site usurp mu beloved britfa... it's more like if marple falls off his motor bike we all migrate to my site within the week. Music can choose the mods (even green) but I draw the line at Black, histrionic fucking schizoid.

Anyway I just noticed there's a fucking mssive post in sheds were I should be posting this bollocks and no here.
