FIXED! FIREFOX ISSUE! with embedded Youtube Videos on forum

Post by MSI »

FIXED: see below for information on the solution.

if you use Firefox there is an issue with embedded YouTube videos
the video won't play (see the circle of death (below) forever)
  • Easiest solution is to simply click on the Youtube link at bottom area (see arrow) to go to video on YouTube
the embedded videos work in Chrome and other browsers
will post up solution for Firefox when find one

FYI
it came back a few days later...
so...
i switched to Chrome which has no issues...
then
with another update of Firefox late last week (some landmark update)
IT FIXED IT!
Videos now play on Firefox too so hopefully if you have updated your Firefox you won't encounter video playback issues!
