Youtube video disappeared. Unable to get it to display

Travel Forums System Talk Youtube video disappeared. Unable to get it to display

This video has been embedded in one of my blog pages

Last time I looked it was there and now it is blank. I have edited the page and re-entered the latest link and still it remains blank. Any ideas, please?


Added:- And just noticed the same thing has happened at the end of that page. There were two videos there.

They work for me. Might be that you haven't opted into the HTML5 trial on youtube, and so are only seeing the Flash versions of those videos, and that your flash player has been "disabled" (set to click-to-play?) by your browser because of it having current security problems. If that last hunch is correct, you'll need to update your Flash player - or just opt into the HTML5 trial. :)

(Oh, or if you're currently travelling, could be your hostel is filtering out youtube to try and limit the amount of bandwidth used by guests.)

Thanks for the advice but I have the latest Firefox, the latest Flash Player which is enabled and I have now also opted in for the HTML5 trial and I still can't see these videos!

ADDED:- Just tried Chrome which I don't usually use and I can see the videos, so it's some sort of Firefox issue by the look of it. It seems I have Firefox 19.0 which is a Beta. Maybe it's that. I'll try reverting but that will have to be later as have just run out of time!

Further to the above. I did get a chance to revert Firefox to the previous version with the same result. No video!

I can see them in both Firefox 19.0 and IE 10 - both with using both flash and the HTML5 trial versions.

I can still not see them on my desktop PC (WIndows 7 x64) but, yes, I CAN see them on my laptop, both with latest Firefox and Flash.


Not sure if it's anything to do with it but I have noticed Firefox seems to struggle with Flash (Youtube site etc) these days. It seizes up for a while before playing the video. I wonder if anyone else has noticed this? Chrome does not display this problem.

Always appreciate the support here.

OK. It was a Firefox plugin (not sure which). I disabled several and now it's all working OK. Thanks!
