YouTube Videos Posted Coming Up As Unavailable

Post by Floppy Hat » October 8th, 2018, 11:45 pm

I've posted a couple of youtube links today. Both come up as unavailable when you click on them, yet both appear to work on the actual youtube site. What am I doing wrong?

I'm going to try to post one below:

That one appears to work fine, but the videos published by the football program won't play on this site for some reason.

It has nothing to do with the site. Some publishers choose to not allow their videos to be embedded on other websites. Unfortunately there isn't much that we can do I'm those situations.

Yep. Utah State for some reason chose to disable embedded videos in their YouTube settings, so no one can share their videos outside of visiting youtube itself. No idea why they would do this, and I assume that they don't know that they have done this. It's been this way for years.
