Topic tags/keywords: video problems youtube no video question

I was trying to post a YouTube video to my blog here last night, but previewing it, there was nothing there. I gave up for the night, but today after browser restarts and everything, they don’t show up. I went back to old videos I’d posted, and they aren’t in the posts anymore. It’ll say something like “Check out this video:” and then there’s nothing there, not even a space for it. I searched through videos here, and other YouTube videos people had posted were likewise gone. Strangely, a few videos posted by someone from another site were still there. It seems YouTube specific. I can’t see any YouTube videos on the entire site.

Here’s an example post that used to have a video. Here’s a screenshot of what I’m seeing instead of a post with a video in it.

Anyone know what’s going on here?

Works for me.

I think it’s just you for some reason.

Works fine here, Gary. Do you have flash enabled in your browser?

StevinMarin posted one just 5 hours ago. It works fine. The SawStop video is working as well.

Thanks for checking for me, guys. I’m glad it’s working elsewhere. Martin – definitely have Flash. I can go watch videos on YouTube, and I can see non-YouTube videos on this site. I turned off my noscript plugin, and LumberJocks was whitelisted anyway. Anyway, it’s clearly an issue over here on my machine, so I’ll run through and disable plugins, and even kill my preferences if I have to until it works again so I can get back to posting.

Thanks!

FOUND IT!

I started going through suspect plugins in Firefox. I thought it might be two video download helpers I put in 2 years ago when I wanted a particular video I can’t remember now, then never used again, but it wasn’t. I’m uninstalling those and a few others anyway. It turned out I’d accidentally added YouTube to AdBlock Plus. I also learned there’s a search box in its preferences, which is necessary as there are hundreds and hundreds of things it auto blocks, or that I’ve added to the block list over the years. I found www.youtube.com in the list, disabled the block, and it all came back as usual. I knew it would be something little like that. At least, I hoped :)

Thanks again, everyone. I’m off to post amazing videos I found now.

I remember when my biggest problem was getting the calves fed and my chores done in time to see Disneyland :-)) Life was so simple and straight forward, nothing to load or unload except the hay rack :-))
