YouTube Blacking Out Videos

I just discovered that YouTube appears to have made a change that invalidates the way we've been embeddin our videos. I just found some comments here:


YouTube embedded videos "black bar" picture problem

Not sure what's going on, but I just posted here and, upon refreshing, my post were gone and my account deleted.

Uh… anyway… just wanted to chime in and state that I, too, am having this same issue; a thick, vertical, left aligned, black bar (centimetre and a half—two) appears, seemingly the height of the embedded video, and nothing else.

Would love if someone could lend some insight, here, as it appears to be a problem at least a few are suffering.

Is anyone NOT having this issue?

If it 'just happened' something has changed, did you or your host do anything like editing, changing servers etc? I suspect from what has already been said that YouTube has changed something.

No changes on our end; woke up, and went to post something, only to find the aforementioned bbcode issue.

I suspect you're right re: YouTube having, themselves, made some changes.

Any ideas?

I'm having the same problem too. For years my YouTube BBcode worked fine. Suddenly today it stopped working and all the videos in my forum now show up as a vertical black bar. What happened? I didn't do anything to cause this change. Can anyone tell me what's wrong?

The topic continues, and I can see that YouTube just gave me a bunch of work to do that I didn't need today.

I have seen that you tube will block and/or demonitize stuff if it in any way gets near copy write laws, or the 'A I bott gets up on the wrong side of their den.
