Youtube shortcode bug

Using 0.18.1 The youtube shortcode renders src="//youtube …
I miss the HTTPS: protocoll identifier.

That’s a feature, not a bug.

I have the most trouble with M$ Edge browser.
I will use now my own shortcode

<div class="row">
<iframe type="text/html" width="640" height="360" src="//{{ index .Params 0 }}?autoplay=1" allowfullscreen frameborder="0"><br /></iframe>

I understand the feature but not sure how applicable it is in this case (I’m not being polite - I just really don’t know). We know youtube supports and recommends https regardless where possible, even if the site it’s embedded in isn’t itself https. It makes a lot more sense for links to our own resources if for some reason you can’t or don’t want to use a relative link.

For what it’s worth for consideration, it does break local file system viewing of a rendered site, because the browser will try to open file://
