Good day,
I migrated my website from one host to Contabo... After migration, I detected all my YouTube links are not working any longer on WordPress dashboard... I have tons of YouTube video links on my site but I discovered it was the cpanel that it was the absence of cpanel that caused this issue.
I wasn't paying for Cpanel on my previous host so I never had any issue with links but on my new host Contabo, you have to pay as high as 14 Dolls per month for Cpanel...
What I wanna know is that is there a way around this or some configurations.. Or without the cpanel, youtube links can not work on WordPress dashboard???
Thanks...

Hey there! cPanel wouldn't be related to links loading or not loading on individual website pages, as cPanel isn't affiliated with WordPress in any way.

Do you see any errors when you try to use those pages or load those links?

If I don't activate the CPanel, the youtube links will be like this: - YouTube

If I activate the Cpanel, the link will change to YouTube preview format with thumbnail...

If I use Iframe to embed like "<iframe src="YouTube"********" width="420" height="315">", whether the cpanel is activated or not it will load the preview...

But I don't want to go through the stress of copying and pasting the embed link each time i want to publish a YouTube link..

I'm not completely sure what you mean by "activate" the cPanel - can you get me more details on what changes you're making when you do that?

In general, cPanel doesn't handle the content that is displayed on the server so it would not be actively changing your YouTube links.
