YouTube vids not visible on the forum

It seems that a lot of posters can't see the YouTube vids posted on the forum since yesterday. They are visible as rectangular black boxes without click possibilities.

Re: YouTube vids not visible on the forum

This has been happening to me as well, but only when I use Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. Just now I tried with Firefox and I was able to watch videos.

I also use Chrome and the problem is the same with Edge.

It seems MTF has the same problem.

Re: YouTube vids not visible on the forum

Same. I use both chrome and internet explorer. Both seem to be affected, at least in my computer. Problem seems to be widespread on the forum but not universal.

Re: YouTube vids not visible on the forum

So the common point is that all the posters using Google Chrome and Internet Explorer can't directly play YT videos posted on forums, right?

All I can say is that I use Google Chrome or Internet Explorer and cannot play YT videos on any forum I know (two others apart from this one, too). So it's not related to this forum only.

I'd like to know if the problem is common to all the Google Chrome users, or if it's only some of them?

Re: YouTube vids not visible on the forum

YouTube is actually a property of Google, the explanation is probably to find there.

Re: YouTube vids not visible on the forum

In both Chrome and IE, the embedded video strangely displays within Flash Player, even though YouTube itself has dropped Flash Player to use HTML5 player back in January 2015. Youtube in Firefox still uses the HTML5 format. I don't think we can do more than wait until Youtube fixes it.

Helpful link, thanks. Yes, I'll wait too. Won't download Chrome Canary for now.

Re: YouTube vids not visible on the forum

If you surf the forum using the default theme, Youtube videos don't work, but if you use the enhanced mobile view theme, everything is ok in the very same browser. The difference between these two themes is in the method for embedding videos. The default theme uses deprecated <object> method, while the latter uses recommended <iframe> method. Both methods still should work, but since they don't, whoever is maintaining this forum should consider updating the method to fix the current issue and to prevent future compatibility issues.
