This just started yesterday. I can't see any videos posted here on SimHQ. Both in Chrome and IE. I just see a partial black square. I have not downloaded any kind of updates? Is anybody else having this isse.

I'm having the same issue since yesterday. I think something has changed with the embedding code.

It's been happening across multiple sites for me too. I'm guessing Youtube changed something, but not sure.

Firefox, no problems at all. I believe they are all moving to HTML5 instead of Flash.
I never use IE or Chrome.

I am getting used to the black rectangles already. If folks would just post a link instead of taking up screen space with embedded video, it would not be a problem.

Yep. Something changed at YT's side it seems.

Videos are embeded with http://yt.com/v/<code>. If you copy & paste that, it goes tits up, but if you change it to the typical yt.com/watch=v?<code> then it works...

Not that it's of any help, but I'm bored. biggrin

Have the same problem with Chrome, Firefox and Edge.

The only thing that changed on my part was that Windows 10 update to 1607.

Just tried that, did not work for me. confused

Embed code now reads "https://youtu.be/codexyz". I never really paid attention, but did it always have that dot in "youtube"?

Not sure, I know youtu.be works as I've seen it before. In my case the /v/<code> URL redirects to https://youtube.googleapis.com/v/<code>, and that doesn't work neither.

What I did is take some video, say http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4286884/Playmobil_MTB#Post4286884. The embedded URL is http://www.youtube.com/v/u3uPZZQVoCg, and I changed it to http://www.youtube.com/watch=v?u3uPZZQVoCg.

Works for me in Vivaldi (Chrome).

Ditto to all of the above.

Clicking on the embedded URL gives me an extremely zoomed-in view of the Youtube page. Clicking on the changed link redirects me to Youtube's 404 page. Weird.

Latest official Chrome version, Firefox, and Edge.

Some Flash problem, maybe?

As I understand it, navigating to the URL directly should take you to either flash or html version of Youtube, according to the browser...

All the videos show and play for me in the 'Military March' thread.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.
