A YT video I added to a post on my blog doesn't work. All it shows is blackness.

  1. I added a YouTube video to this post:

    I typed this: [youtube=]

    Is anyone else seeing this or is it just me? I can click on it and hear the video playing, but I see no video. After clicking on it I am no longer able to click on it again, and the sound of the video continues.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. I am using Firefox 20 and the video works fine for me.

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see >

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled:

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS:

    If it’s still happening, let us know exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary and also post any error reports you get.

  3. It works just fine for me. I am wondering if you need to clear your browser cache: that often helps with YouTube issues.

  4. I tried clearing my cache, I'm using HTTPS, my third-party cookies are enabled, my Firefox browser is up-to-date. I'm not sure what the problem is, because if I go to another one of my posts that has a YouTube video (here) where I typed this: [youtube=]
    It works just fine.

  5. Do you by chance have a "no scripts" sort of plugin/add-on/extension installed in your browser?

  6. I do have no scripts. However, I now have it working. I restarted my browser, and now it works. Thanks for the help.
