I noticed this problem about 2 weeks ago and I was hoping it would fix itself. But it didn't.
Many of my hubs, not to mention my blogs, have embedded youtube videos. Now they no longer show up. Just a blank square where they should be. Any clue why this is and how to fix it? Am I the only one or has everyone noticed their embedding no longer works?
Copyright issues that affect youtube washing over us. All my embedded vids that I made are fine. Some of other people's tht I use are ok, but if it's like an mtv version song vid or such, those are being methodically deleted on youtube. I don't think the issues you are having are Hubpages related.
Mine is still working fine. Every now and then, one will stop working. If I go to Youtube, I usually find the clip has been removed, or embedding has been disabled.
If all your videos have disappeared, could it be a setting on your PC? I can't see videos at work because the company firewall blocks them.
I haven't noticed anything lately, but I have in the past. I believe all it is is when someone you've linked to has been requested to disable the embedding usually due to copyright violations. Music videos seem to be the most suseptible. Go back to the video on YouTube itself and you'll find they probably say something along the lines of "embedding disabled by copyright owner" or something similar. You just have to find an alternate source that does allow it. I've had to replace some of mine several times.
Whose videos are you embedding?
Record labels have been really cracking down on YouTube over this last year, getting unauthorized copies of videos shut down. So have various movie studios. If I'm going to embed a music video or movie clip, I try and find if the producing label has their own channel, as then those videos are authorized.
Though I've found that most of the time they have embedding turned off. That might be the problem here also.
and better quality. but as DS said, a lot of them have embedding turned off
i hate looking for a favorite song and finding it and opening it and it's some 15-year-old kid doing a cover of it
Thanks for trying to help. None of my embedding works, even of my own videos that I made on youtube, like tutorials for my Hubs. I'll go check the settings and see if they changed when youtube did it's latest upgrade.
I have now isolated the problem to my computer, since my boyfriend looked at my blogs on his and he sees the embedding videos just fine. I'm glad the rest of the world can see them even if I can't. Thanks everyone who answered.
Update: Just in case anyone ever has this issue, I downloaded the newest Version of Flash, and now I can see the embedded videos again. Whew!

I know that hubpages is strict about violations and copyright but is it a violation to post a youtube video in your hub, which you know includes copyrighted material, which the one uploading the video did not have permission to upload? Like a movie clip or a song lyrics video. I know the internet...

For some reason I can no longer embed YouTube videos in my hubs. The message keeps saying "URL not recognized." It worked fine before, so why can't I do it now? Is anybody else having this problem?

Working on some in-depth music vid reviews, was wondering if it would be against adsense to embed music vids from authorized places like MTV, VEVO, Yahoo, or perhaps the artist's website?
