Hello, I have a form and view setup like the real estate listing template. The detail page used to display the video (which is a youtube link in the entry) but after the last update in Wordpress, it only displays the youtube link now. What can I do to get the link to display the actual video again?

I don't have a solution, in fact I have a similar problem. I have a view showing multiple Vimeo links. Some links show a video preview, i.e. like they're embedded but others only display the URL link. I can see no pattern in why some are displayed and some not.

You may need to use a plug-in that embeds the video and produces shortcode code that you can feed into detail tab of the view.
