BBC Channel Youtube - IP LOCK Tests

This is BBC Worldwide:
[video=youtube;mSB71jNq-yQ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSB71jNq-yQ[/video]
Everybody should be able to view this, I hope.

Is this one working for everyone worldwide? :?

This is BBC UK:
The Graham Norton chat show with Tom Cruise only aired on Friday 30th May and in the USA this weekend, I understand.

Is this one IP locked outside of the UK (or USA)? :?

Test and replies please!

I'm just putting a link within URL tags behind this line to test the theory that the problems with the forums are related to that:

CNN

OK, with the URL as last entry there seems to be no issue. Now let's see what's happening when I put the link somewhere in the text...

I used the unfurl (embed) tester on that URL but it errors out:

The following error occurred while fetching metadata from URL https://www.cnn.com/
Could not fetch metadata from URL with error: File is too large.
Google works fine:

That explains why YouTube links with identical code didn’t get the little previews where those posted by others did.

OK, in the first post I just put "www.cnn.com" in the without https in front of it. In the second post I actually put in the whole URL including https between the tags.

Mind you, I don't use the buttons in the reply field, instead I write the tags manually.

I don't use any BBCode either -- I just paste URLs on their own line and let the forums take care of embedding it as a video, embedding the link preview, etc.
