Hi, starting this morning, all I get is a black strip in place of embedded Youtube videos when viewing 24HCF on two Windows 10 machines using IE11. I can't even right click and get them to open them in Youtube. Based on some other posts today, others are having the same problem, while some said that they now can see videos they could not see before.

They do work on my iPad running Safari.

Did something change on this site, or do I need to look elsewhere for a solution?

Thanks

I'm running Windows 7 Professional, and hitting the same black bar snag, too.

Got an automated call yesterday AM, some line about a Windows registry license expiring,...with an 800 # to call. I was out on the tractor and did not write it down, figuring it for just another scam.

Can still call up Youtube Vids directly,....WTF, over ?

Is your Adobe flash player up to date?

Yes. Behaves the same way on a Mac with Safari and Chrome.

That's all I got, Allen!

Works fine here on Win7/FF/adblock/ccleaner/etc.
Fine also on iPhone 5 safari.

I usually use the adblck browser to avoid all the problems with this site, on it I by get TV the black bar. Using Chrome I see the video.

Never said it wasn't. But what's that got to do with YouTube videos not showing up? Never ceases to amaze me how much trouble some people have viewing this site, while others have nil...

BTW, 'flave's proud of me and that's all I need...

Rick,

Looks like Youtube recently changed their embed code that affected your board software. This appears to be the solution.

Thanks for tracking that down Pugs. But I still don't understand why some see black bars and others see the videos. If it's something YouTube changed, shouldn't it affect us all? Or, likewise if it's a website issue? I don't claim to be any sort of computer geek, I just know I don't experience any of the issues that others do on this site.

Here's what I see of the embedded video above:

No clue - what OS and Browser are you using? I'm a engineer who has to make computers work to do my job but not a web developer.

One of the things I noted was it affects even videos posted several years ago.

Here's what I see with RWE's post.

Windows 10 and Firefox with uBlock. Previously used AdBlock but uBlock seemed to work better on my Droid so switched to it on the PC as well. The embedded video is visible on my phone too.

ETA- just disabled uBlock and enabled AdBlock and the video's still visible so don't think there's any issue with different ad blockers causing it.

I get the same black bars on several forums I visit, and from similar posts, it seems the problem is happening all over the Web. Its not confined to a particular browser either, but seems to be rather random....

Nope - very much something Rick has to fix with the embedding code he uses.
