Youtube "device not supported" embedding problem
« on: 08 May, 2015, 23:02:46 »
Since a couple of days, each time we try to embed a video, youtube shows a device not longer supported video.

I did a quick search and I found the official announcement: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6098135?hl=en

Which says: If the video appears unexpectedly in a web browser, it means that website is using an outdated method to access YouTube videos

So that's probably what is happening to the forum. I haven't found documentation on how to solve ti thou.

I think the youtu.be versions of links still embed.
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

It seems that if you use the link that YT gives you from the "share this" button, of the form...

http://  youtu  .  be  /  dhi371HwnT6

(Without spaces), then it still works.
Annoying, but there you go.
