Iframe to YouTube doesn't work


When I post a YouTube iframe link in AF 5.2.2. on DNN 7.2.2 I get a message about internal server error and the content of the iframe doesn't show up while the rest of the post is perfectly visible.

The HTML and javascript options are enabled for that forum.

Is there some kind of internal cross site scripting block involved in AF? If so, how can it be circumvented?

Disregard this thread. I have AF working with it now. It was a matter of malformed link.

The issue is in the URL conversion.

Youtube iframe code is formatted so:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/.........." frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> When you save the discussion AF convert the URL in:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.mydnndomain.it/...//www.youtube.com/.........." frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> As workaround you can add an "http:" before "//" in the src
