trouble with YouTube
Ines Vano_Garcia writes
I am creating a site (“Documenting Communities (Focus Inquiry Group – FIG)”) to display multiple projects developed by several graduate students during their teaching this semester. One of the projects has several YouTube videos created by students. I have added the videos to one page (the page is “projects” under “violence, healing, justice”) but I am having trouble with one of the links – it does not show as a YouTube image (like the others). I have checked and all the links are unlisted, and I am not sure why this link is acting differently.

I spent a few minutes trying to figure this out, but I couldn't see the problem.
The proper YouTube embed URL for the video in question is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BZ7VSM_Tbo&feature=youtu.be, but this didn't seem to work even after deleting the oembed cache in postmeta.
Ray, do you have experience with how YouTube oembed works? Maybe you could have a look.

Scott may have cracked it. He writes "It embeds for me when you use this url - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BZ7VSM_Tbo&feature=youtu.be"

oEmbed for that one particular item has been blocked, probably due to the video's settings.
What I've done in this case is link the video's thumbnail to YouTube as a workaround for now until the video author has maybe changed their video settings to be more open.
Let me know if that is good enough, Marilyn.
