    Default No video anymore [youtube]

    So recently (past 2 days) I've clicked several threads where someone has shared a video (please forgive my lack of proper internet terminology). I'm referring to instances such as using the "[youtube..../youtube]" to actually show the video in your post. I had to intentionally lose a couple of brackets so it didn't try to post an actual video

    My problem is that I no longer can view the video....it's just a black box there.

    I have no idea what the hell I must have done? Obviously it's on my end because other folks post follow up comments about said video.

    I use I.E. & hate the format of Chrome/Gmail....(I guess I just hate learning new formats)

    I'll give Chrome a try & see what happens

    Yup, got to go to Chrome or upgrade OS to Windows 10 with Edge browser. It all has to do with the HTML5 format for YouTube videos.

    I guess I have a hybrid-problem.

    I've been seeing a black box when I scroll down to a post with a video, but it quickly changes to "normal".

    I use Firefox and if I start having the same issue, I guess I'll live without Youtube because I'm not switching anything.

    Same here. I got on board with Mozilla early on and haven't looked back since

    I keep Chrome installed just in case as backup

    I use a variety of browsers, but use Slim Browser for this site. I get the black boxes now.

    Chrome is Google. Google bad. No use Chrome or Google.
