    I'm having trouble viewing some videos that are linked on the different threads. For instance, the video in the 2016 Recruiting thread and the most recent video in the FSU game thread. For whatever reason they come up as only half the screen (top half) and when I click on them the video just starts and stops. Can't seem to see the entire video (not meaning what the video is attempting to show as it goes through the entire video but I actually can only see the top half of the actual video). Have I screwed something up?

    @Tigers

    sorry, not a dvu question but a TMB question. Apparently someone is following me now over there. What is this wizardry? I'd prefer to know what the shit this is before I send a PM being all "why you stalking me, creeper"

    Does anyone else occasionally get linked to download random apps on mobile when clicking on one of the threads? It has happened a half dozen times to me.

    Anyway to disable the link re-director thing when you click a link to and external URL, I find it really annoying

    There is not, it is meant to protect our users. But we seem to be getting complaints pretty regularly about it. I think it is slightly annoying too but the purpose of it is good. It protects our users and DVU in general. When someone posts a link to a site in a thread on DVU the site that is being linked to can trace that back to the exact thread and post. On TMB that lead to legal issues from time to time and most importantly it allowed people to find the thread and come in and flood it. The redirect hides the traffic that is using the link on DVU so that it is much harder for them to trace it to DVU and its users.

    That said, @Raggy we may need to take a look at it due to the number of complaints about it.

    I vote we leave it.

    If people can't figure out how to embed it or copy/paste, I'm probably not going to click on it anyway

    Can the redirect time be shortened to one second or zero? It looks like it's a 3 second delay now.

    Example of how it looks to me. The picture is a direct screen grab of while I was watching/listening to the Rich Eisen interview with Dabo on Rex Ryan. Really frustrating for sure. @Raggy DVU Bug.JPG

    Since the latest update to Chrome for iOS (version 48.0.2564.87) clicking thread titles and alerts are not taking me to the last read or the post in question. Seems to be a xenforo thing as it's doing the same thing on tmb.

    Don't have FF but it works fine on safari.

    On chrome clicking an arrow in a quoted post that usually links to the OP also does nothing.

    Maybe it's just me, but Google is giving me a phishing warning for the NFL page now. Must be a bad link on the last page?
