Photobucket workaround

As you all know Photobucket was for a long time used by many of us to host our photos for the many threads/posts over the years. Photobucket made some changes and all those photos to so many of those great threads were no longer visible. Thanks to admins they discovered a Chrome extension that will allow you to see those lost photos again. Thanks Merkeyterkey.

Just add an extension to Chrome. Just go to this Chrome site and add the extension and you will be able to see all those Photobucket pics you lost access to. VERY EASY, works great.

Send a message via AIM to eurocars
The extension will let you see any photos broken by photobucket when they rolled out their hosting payment plan.

If this extension ever quits working - go back to googles extension page, there will most likely be an updated version of the extension.

All photos hosted by Photobucket in unpaid accounts had their file extension changed in a recent effort to stop hosting files for third party viewing. What was lost was the ability to view any of those pics, years worth of pics posted by anyone using a free Photobucket account. What is recovered by adding this extension to your browser is the ability to see all those pics again.

This extension defeats Photobuckets attempt to block access to those pics. As mentioned above, Photobucket may change that extension once again when they see that this "fix" has spread widely and their effort to block third party access has failed.

Third Party Hosting is when you (first party) use our forum (second party) for example and post a pic by placing a link in your thread pointing to a pic for example hosted by Photobucket (third party)

Thanks for this. So many DIYs and other guides were busted because of that change.
