4 posts--2 empty white video frames.  Bummer.  gtoledo said there's another way to attach/link to videos that actually works for all of us presumably.

Hmm. My video post was simply the URL pasted from YouTube into the Quick Reply box and Lefora software handles the display. I see the videos fine in both platforms I use: Chrome on Win8 PC and Safari iOS on an iPad Air. Maybe some Mac users can chime in.

I mentioned it in the other thread Michael, but you should try Chrome. I see them in Chrome, but don't in Safari. That makes me think it's a Safari issue. Chuck thinks I'm daft, but at least I see the content.

Steve,

You did mention it.  But I am really reluctant to support Google in any ways other than the most basic ones that cross my path because many of us are already 'dancing to their tune' and it's not necessarily a supportive 'tune' to my way of life.  It's sort of an old concept now but: "think globally, act locally".  And I know if I figure out why, I'll get an 'a-HA moment' and I'll get to feel smart for a few fleeting moments.  But it seems more likely at this point that I'll do an OS update at some point and it'll just be working again.

I can see/play all the videos on a MacBook air w/Yosemite. On my MacBook pro w/Mavericks, I started seeing blank white spaces right after I did the last Adobe flash update.

How about Firefox?  I've been using it for years, but on Windows PCs.  It's available on OSX.

That's really interesting, since I'm on the latest Flash version.  I wonder if I can go back.  Guys--thanks for the browser suggestions, but I like Safari and this is not enough of a problem to switch.  If I REALLY badly want to see what's in an empty frame I can download it with Wondershare (and have done this a few times).

Youtube Flash API deprecation

YouTube videos on PRW for me currently have a Flash API deprecation notice on the bottom:

It appears that Lefora needs to change from the YouTube Flash API (AS3) to the IFrame API for YouTube videos. Some platforms will still play the "old" way but some will not.

Here are a couple of links that mention this issue:

Fair enough.  I'm thinking that you probably don't want to see the YouTube videos anyway, since YT is owned by Google.  Youngwhisk has probably given the correct answer about the flash format problem.  Seems odd when you consider that they just revamped the whole Lefora server with a "major" upgrade a few months ago.  Seems like a funny thing for them to miss.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for getting to the bottom of this mytery!!  I knew there had to be a logical explanation.  For the record, when posting on Lefora there is another way to embed videos in posts: gtoledo pointed it out... I think in a PM to me.  So all Lefora would have to do is eliminate the 'wrong' way.

 Steve,
I have to live in the real world: I'm not militant/'postal' about this issue.  But I just don't really want to hand over any more ability to control my behavior to a company who is not, in the broader scheme of making my professional life better (or not), "part of the solution".  YMMV.
