Links to Formula1's YouTube videos can only be watched on their YouTube page. I'm not sure if this is the issue.

As of today, I am having problems (or lack of skill) with youtube videos. Example (same link):

Yes - embedded youtube videos have not worked for me in a good while and the one here does not work either.

EDIT: so the embedding function seems to require that the youtube URL:s be secure (https). Tried to embed them without but that was promptly rejected. Accessing the forum using http or https does not affect this either.

On Tapatalk it works fine, but as soon as I use it on Chrome or Safari then it doesn't work.
Always find the gap then use it.

Youtube issue confirmed, unrelated to browsers. The embed code is wrong.
Strange this is now happening all of a sudden, nothing was changed...

I'll investigate ;)

In the meantime, there is a workaround.
You can append something like &dummy=1 to the url for your video.

So: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXh9uxthFnk&dummy=1
instead of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXh9uxthFnk
