As of December, 2013, I had made my latest music video post, in where I embed and share a couple music videos of a favoured artist, while also providing the link to the original YouTube page, and often encouraging viewers to buy their music on iTunes.
As of today, February 19, 2014, practically all of my embedded video clips do not play anymore. They go all static-y and display a message that reads:
"This video contains content from [VEVO] or [UMG] or [WMG]. It is restricted from playback on certain sites."
I've never had issues embedding videos before... Is there new embedding "laws" that YouTube has now created for 2014, making sharing much more difficult? Are they cracking down on sharing? Is it a WordPress-YouTube relationship issue?
The last time I checked my videos was in December 2013, and they worked. Within two months of the new year they don't, so I'm wondering if something is new for 2014 that I'm not aware of?
Any information on the matter would be greatly appreciated. :)
Oh, and yes, when I follow the root provider on YouTube, the videos have not been removed and play perfectly fine while on YouTube. I've even tried getting a new "embed code" and updated my page to no avail. Same error, denying the embedded video from playing.
The blog I need help with is schnippits.wordpress.com.
