Default Help ! whats happened to video's on WF ?

I notice that on my main notebook computer with Win10 that I was having trouble putting videos to posts. I would only display an empty box with a narrow black vertical band to the left. No video or title displayed.
I thought this was just Win10 - but I see my Android tablet is doing same.

I can post videos on other forums such as RCG without problem - but WF seems to have blocked them now.

I cannot even view other posts videos - same blank box.

I am posting here because I cannot find a better section, plus to have maximum number of people read and comment.

Anyone else having trouble to view / post videos on Wattflyer ?

I don't get it ...

Here are the pdf's of WF and RCG and you can see the difference for me ..

WF - I have no title in the top bar of video box, no video showing ...

But RCG has the title in top bar and video plays.

I have changed to Chrome ... maybe I should try another browser ?

I just see blanks with a black vertical bar. Never been like that before.
I have always used Google Chrome.

This vid from Ditchit is the same...

Older You Tube vid's posted here (prior to 8-9-16) appear as normal for me......review box the same and just click on the vid screen.

Newer vid's (since 8-9-16) are hit and miss..........some look normal, some review box with black bar will only open when the You Tube label on top of the box is clicked, some just the text link.......and some link to You Tube but get message stating "You Tube Video Requested Unavailable".........Regardless of who posted the Vid.....!

For forum and internet correspondence, I only use my older lap top W7 Pro, with Google, Google Chrome and Firefox........everything on the Android LG pad appears the same as above using Chrome....!

It appears that this issue is a product of both the senders application and Wattflyers translation tools........more than likely something on Wattflyers end has changed.

Windows 10 with Firefox.

Do you have any problems with just links to a video, instead of embedded videos?

I dont see any of the above embedded videos. Youtube url links work and the embedded videos will also take me to Youtube by clicking the header, and once in Youtube itself the video will run.

I've tried on three different computers, two running Win 8 and one Win 10. I've tried three different browsers Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox.. i get the same 'black bar' with all. I've also tried 'logged in' and 'logged out' as a guest.. makes no difference.

I've also tried changing my location using ZenMate so i appear to the forum to be in the US.... that makes no difference either.

On my Blackberry they work ok.

This is without doubt a WF issue, I dont have this problem anywhere else.

Its been an issue for a few weeks for me. Never know if when clicking on the youtube title on the blackbar/blank screen will produce a video or the black screen notice saying "video not available".

Like Nigel said, only happening here at WF.

Hi guys,

First, let me remind you that if you post technical issues to the proper forum, they will get resolved much quicker:
