You Tube Links have disappeared

    Since the Dashboard Maintainance today, it seems the youtube links no longer work. I have simply got a blank white square in place of what was originally a youtube link. I have noticed it on other WP’ers who use youtube links and I have had comments from my readers. Any clues as to whether it is just me or if there is a major problems with video links?

    Same problem here! I also checked the UTube site. they are doing some maintenance too. Maybe something is wrong at their end?

    The blank videos are related to the scheduled YouTube maintenance, not the WordPress.com maintenance.

    Mine seem to be back now. Check yours again. If they’re still white I’ve got a suggestion. Sometimes you get the white boxes if your cache is full, so cleaning it out and restarting always fixes that for me.

    It all seems to be working after a cache clearance.

    Thanks, all.

    Hullo. My Utube links have gone again. Anyone else experiencing this problem?
    A minute later: I just went to check raincoaster’s tube links. His are blank too. Wondering what’s wrong with UTube? Are they doing this only to the WordPress Blogs?

    They load fine for me now. YouTube is a glitchy thing.

    Mine are all gone, but only in Internet Explorer, Firefox works OK.

    This is weird…

    Just installed IE7, still no dice. Firefox still working, though.

    It looks like some issue with IE+wordpress, as I’m seeing embeds with IE ok in other blogs (blogger, for example)…

    Same here. That’s all of the latest IE versions….

    I bet this is a YouTube issue, not WordPress. It seems when anybody upgrades their system it’s messy in IE (Technorati has a similar issue) but if they hear from enough users they’ll fix it pronto.

    Ours disappeared too! I dont know why, but it is definitely really annoying! It’s as if it was an image that was not loading, with the red x in a square in the top left corner.

    Don’t forget to send in a support request at Youtube.

    Mine have gone again. Looks like it’s a big problem.And I just wrote in feedback that it’s okay!!
    And this time there is no white square. It’s just grey with a little red cross in the top left hand corner.

    Maybe the problem is wide spread. How about posting in the unofficial youtube support forum? http://www.youtubeforums.com/ And sending an email to the official one http://www.youtube.com/
