None of the videos are showing up today. It was all working yesterday. Is it just me or is it everyone?
He cheated, check the caption of the image.You guys might want to check on where you're connecting from... Just now, Geezer 's YT link worked just fine:

Some places actually have proxies that prohibit YT, because it can be a distraction just like FaceBook. There are stories on Internet about how people got fired over being on FaceBook during work - not because FB is a bad place, but because at work, you're supposed to pay attention to work, not FB. YT has no problems with bandwidth, but the proxies might. Not everybody who uses the proxy uses YT - but everybody's right to bandwidth needs to be respected, even if they don't use YT.
I did a "clean room" swipe, thanks. xD
When and if the embeds start working again I'll be the first one to switch back. It's just so much easier and I'm lazy like that.To be honest, I was never wild about tags for embedded media pulling in actual YT content... That is full-blown XSS, which is not only a security headache, but is also awfully prone to bandwidth abuse. Geezer actually pointed to a great idea that addresses both problems, while maintaining the looks. After all, I was fooled until Menelkir pointed it out. So, going forward, I would actually propose that everyone do it the way Geezer and Vull have shown us...
