Say you work for an online media magazine whose very livelihood depends on embedding video and putting out new content, particularly from YouTube and its cadre of creators. It’d be pretty frustrating for you if, I don’t know, YouTube’s embed option were disabled, right? Well, apparently there is a glitch in the Matrix for nobody can do anything but scream at their console until the issue gets patched up. That or start featuring LiveLeak content (shudder).
We’ve reached out to YouTube to give them a sort of “Hey, what the hell?!” shove; we’ll let you know more when we do. This is probably some failed attempt to get rid of buffering.
