Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook jsoeder 7/28/09 4:23 PM
When I click the Facebook share button below a video (my own or anyone else's), it merely opens a new window with the same video.

I haven't been able to share succesfully to Facebook for the past few days, after sharing many videos with no trouble in the past year.

Help, please?!

Today I cannot send a video to my Facebook acct -  I keep getting this error message
 
Transport error (#12152) while retrieving data from endpoint `/ajax/share.php': Unknown HTTP error #12152

In Firefox 3.5 I got some errors, but it did eventually share... though the link back from my Facebook page seems like it might be defective.  Any more details folks can offer on the specific errors you're seeing (and which browser(s) you're seeing them in)?
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook ebbixx 8/6/09 8:26 AM
You might want to bring these issues up with Facebook as well.  The problems I've seen so far look like connection issues with their servers, for the most part.  This thread has been tagged, however, for further staff attention in case there is something YouTube can do on their side of the connection.

Please, help me somebody...I do have the same issue - can not share ANY video with Facebook & already for more than a month. Youtube team has never answered to any of my 3 emails to them concerning this problem. I use Firefox 3.5, re-installing of it did not help either. :(( What to do with this?
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook Ugfufu 8/16/09 6:23 PM
I faced this problem too and found a pretty good solution...while in your profile in your facebook, click "options" under the "share" button then "settings" then "import stories form youtube"...this posted my latest vid which is what i just wanted
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook bhatton79 8/19/09 8:21 PM
The last post sounded like it would work but facebook says it doesn't recognize my youtube username? I there any youtube support for this? Seems like a bug in the system!
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook Ugfufu 8/20/09 9:54 PM
There is another way...you can connect the two accounts so that everytime you upload a new vid to youtube, youtube will automatically post it in your facebook wall...to do this, go to youtube;log-in;hover over your name located on the top right corner,click "account";"sharing";"autoshare options";add service:Facebook...save

Has anyone found another way to post a youtube video to facebook??  
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook Jay NaPier 9/17/09 9:35 AM
I tried the autoshare and it seemed to work but now it's not working - Any help available?
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook ThisBoyTV 9/17/09 8:17 PM
Good one Ugfufu... it works :)
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook Ugfufu 9/18/09 6:55 PM
@dollfaces28: have you tried checking your capslock? maybe youtube does not allow you if you have not confirmed your e-mail add yet..
@ Jay NaPier: using autoshare... what i noticed is that youtube does not immediately post your videos or whatever to facebook, it takes an hour or two or more before you can see youtube post it...that's the case with me..i don't know how it work with anybody else
@ ThisBoyTV: Thanks buddy! just sharing what i know because i know how it feels to be helped..

That reminded me of a previous unrelated (I think) post. That "s.ytimg.com" site was blocked by the person's browser so all content coming from or going to it was blocked. If this feature requires it, you have to unblock it. That varies by browser but for IE8; Internet Options, Privacy tab, Sites button, if that site's in that list you need to unblock it.
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook eka123 10/10/09 6:21 PM
I think it has to do with what are you trying to share it with, when I used mac i could not share but when i used PC i was able to. Does anybody experience the same thing.

go to ur fb home and u get a dialog box (whats on your mind?) there you have to click on link so that you can post a link.
In another tab or window go to the video on youtube which u want 2 share and copy the URL which is situated above the embed and on the right hand side of the video.then go back to fb and paste the URL and  click on attach. then you can write something about the video and then share

When I try to share my videos in facebook, what is posted on my facebook profile is not the link to my video, is just www.youtube.com
I tried changing the privacy settings, pasting the link directly on facebook, etc, but it ends in the same... :( so sad...
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook JDoors 1/10/10 9:35 AM
Yeah, I started getting that yesterday. YouTube or FB must have changed something. Hope they straighten this out.
 
If it's on YouTube's end, it would serve them well to fix this ASAP as I'm not sharing any more of their content as long as this problem exists. If it's FB ... I hope it's not a permanent change.
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook ebbixx 1/10/10 10:26 AM
I'm not sure how those seeing this problem are doing the sharing.  When I use the link from the video's own page, the video shares fine.  FWIW, I'm using Firefox 3.5.7 and the Facebook link that appears under the "Share" link that appears under the video itself, at least when I'm viewing the video page and not my channel page.  But the facility from my channel page also seems to be working.

I'm puzzled, though not for the first time.  I do notice that there's a bit of text identifying the source as YouTube in the FaceBook link, but that "link" is not clickable, so I assume it's only there as fair warning to one's FB friends, to allow those who might have a dislike for a given site to avoid following links to a general site that they've decided to boycott or avoid?
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook JDoors 1/10/10 1:28 PM
Sometimes it works for me, sometimes not, using the identical procedure. I'm not a huge FB junkie so it never really bothers me when it isn't working.
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook spectacularp 1/21/10 5:04 PM
u need to and an "&" to the end of your youtube url

worked for me
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook fabiofigo 2/7/10 9:26 AM
I used to have the same prob, as spectacularp suggests it is enough to add an & at the youtube link

Looks, like it's a major spread problem, YouTube teams already are working on a solution. 
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook kaykay8 5/4/10 11:42 AM
hey everyone ... after months of desperate clicking and searching i finally found the answer on the facebook page itself (!) .. as far as i'm concerned we're all having the same prob - if not, sorry 4 keeping your hopes up.

i followed this instruction from the facebook help center and i can finally post all the you tube vids :)  :


To ensure that links are published when you click "Share", please verify that you have allowed the Links application to publish these stories. To check, follow the steps below:

1. Go to the Application Settings page, accessible from the Settings tab at the top of any Facebook page. 
2. Click "Edit Settings" to the right of the Links application.
3. Click the Additional Permissions tab.
4. Make sure that the "Publish to streams" box is checked.

Additionally, please make sure that your "Status and links" privacy setting allows your friends to view your status and shared links. You can adjust this setting from the "Profile" section of your Privacy Settings page.
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook JDoors 5/4/10 1:11 PM
But ... everyone wants to blame YouTube, and you took that away from them!      LOL!
 
I don't recall checking out that page in FB, thanks for the information.
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook kaykay8 5/4/10 1:46 PM
glad i could help :))


Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook LovnLif79 5/13/10 11:22 AM
I fixed my very similar difficulty by clearing my browsing data history, then restarting the browser. Worked perfectly the first time after that...
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook woodsterman 5/21/10 7:45 AM
As soon as I joined Facebook I lost the "Embed" button under the videos. There is only a share button now ... What up?
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook ebbixx 5/21/10 8:32 AM
Are you referring to a YouTube video watch page?  It should appear to the right of the share button.  If you have a screencap, or can make one to show this problem, I'm sure staff would be interested to know that, along with possibly relevant details.  For instance, did you happen to connect your new Facebook account to your YouTube account, using the links that appear in the expanded sharing section?  (The stuff that appears on the page if you click the "Share" button).

These features have changed a lot since this thread started back in July 2009, so a lot of what you read in this thread may be completely irrelevant and even misleading for how the new layout approaches these features, by the way.
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook ebbixx 5/21/10 8:36 AM
To share a screencap, you'll need to upload it to one of the free image sharing hosts, such as Flickr, ImageShack, TinyPic, Picasa or others you can find with the following search:  http://www.google.com/search?hl=&q=image+hosts+free&sourceid=navclient-ff&rlz=1B3GGGL_enUS287US287&ie=UTF-8&aq=2&oq=image+hosts

Then, you can get a link to your image that can be shared here as text.
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook woodsterman 5/21/10 8:59 AM
I found my problem. If was the newly updated "Easy YouTube Downloader" add-on for Firefox. I deactivated it and I now have my "Embed" button back.

I hope this helps someone else. It WASN'T a Facebook problem.
Re: Can't share YouTube videos on Facebook JDoors 5/21/10 10:06 AM
Thanks for the update. I dont' think we'd have figured that one out, good job.      ; )
