Hmm... I just see the blank white Youtube video placeholder...

Flashblock disabled

AdBlock disabled

Click&Clean disabled

etc.

I don't understand. I see embedded youtoob vids on other sites just fine. :(

Worked for me with Adblock enabled (not using Flashblock or Click&Clean).
Had to tell Noscript to "allow this page".

If you thought cartoon mating dragons was objectionable....You might have censored it. :devil:

Nope, that doesn't work.

Nope. Sure didn't.

I still don't understand why this board is the ONLY site online where I cannot EVEN SEE embedded YouTube vids. Strange.

Well it has to do with something in linux because those of us running Windows see the embedded videos with no problem.

Likewise, w/ Win 10 & Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit)....
At the top of Sunrat's post (# 4) I see some html that looks like he's trying to make a couple of IFrames,  followed by an a href paragraph, followed by the words "Nope, that doesn't work."

Below that, is a video, that's being blocked by my "noscript" browser add-on. If I tell noscript to "allow this page" it will play.

By clicking "quote" to see what he typed. The working video appears to be nested in "media" forum code.

I can't speak for the administrators of this forum, but back when "dunning forums" were popular, we avoided a lot of mischief by blocking html in posts.

The ONLY browser I have on this system that can "see" embedded vids here at Scot's is Seamonkey. Neither FF nor Pale Moon show anything but a 3" x 5" or so blank image holder that when right-clicked just shows my adobe flash settings.

I've tested this with ALL addons and plugins disabled in FF. Still just shows the above. :(

This is what the board's software actually creates when you embed a video here (source taken from Roger's post above):

<object height="[url=""]390[/url]" width="[url=""]640[/url]"><param name="[url=""]movie[/url]" value="[url=""]http://youtube.com/v/gZyjJtBIlow?version=3[/url]">
<param name="[url=""]wmode[/url]" value="[url=""]transparent[/url]"><param name="[url=""]allowFullScreen[/url]" value="[url=""]true[/url]">
<param name="[url=""]allowscriptaccess[/url]" value="[url=""]always[/url]">
<embed src="[url="view-source:http://youtube.com/v/gZyjJtBIlow?version=3"]http://youtube.com/v/gZyjJtBIlow?version=3[/url]" type="[url=""]application/x-shockwave-flash[/url]" wmode="[url=""]transparent[/url]"
allowscriptaccess="[url=""]always[/url]" allowfullscreen="[url=""]true[/url]" height="[url=""]390[/url]" width="[url=""]640[/url]"></object>

So, what's different about Scot's and say my board at ProBoards, for example?

Here's the source from an embedded video at my board:

<iframe title="[url=""]YouTube video player[/url]" src="[url="view-source:http://www.youtube.com/embed/oxHnRfhDmrk?wmode=
transparent&start=0"]//www.youtube.com/embed/oxHnRfhDmrk?wmode=transparent&amp;start=0[/url]" allowfullscreen="[url=""]1[/url]" frameborder="[url=""]0[/url]" height="[url=""]349[/url]" width="[url=""]560[/url]"></iframe>

Hmm... very different. The second one (at my board) is very simplistic and does not use param values. Well, that may be a hint as to what's going on here. :shrug3:

The first part of my above message was testing to see if Vimeo could be embedded. That's what didn't work. When I tested the YouTube video (with the http tweak) it worked fine. In Firefox in Linux.
Lately I've been getting the latest Flash directly from Adobe, extracting it and putting libflashplayer.so in ~/.mozilla/plugins. Works every time whereas the old automatic packages like flashplugin-nonfree are currently broken.

Good job! I watched both videos.

P.S. Vimeo? I dunno... web pages have gotten waaaaay too complicated...

Hey! I just noticed something.... Now I can see the embedded box, but it has an image and a notice that YouTube no longer supports flash-embedded videos. Well, that's an improvement over the blank white space in these posts. ;)

Clutter... Vimeo's nothing new. It's been around since 2004.

vp9 is the new open video codec from Google - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VP9
opus is the new open audio codec from Xiph.org who also developed FLAC and Ogg - http://opus-codec.org/
WebM is the new open media container format - https://www.webmproject.org/about/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebM
These are open, free alternatives to the proprietary HEVC H.265, AAC, and mp4.

When I say "new", WebM has been around for 8 years and VP9 for 5.

But it's not a Flash embedded video. It's HTML5. Maybe a Flash version is still available but it shouldn't default to that. youtube-dl shows these formats are available:

WebM has been supported for years. That shouldn't be the issue. From the Wikipedia link I posted above:

Native WebM support by Mozilla Firefox,[7][8] Opera,[9][10] and Google Chrome[11] was announced at the 2010 Google I/O conference.
