You Tube Videos Don't Play

Post by Jaymann »

Linked videos in posts no longer play. I can go to You Tube if I really want to see them. I use Firefox.

Try using the Invidition extension. It redirects YouTube links to the alternative ad-free, privacy-friendly, Invidio.us interface.

Well I tried it and it didn't work - the play arrow didn't even show up. So I removed it and they started working again. I guess the threat is mightier than the execution.

If you find it's not working try switching to another instance, i.e. click on the Invidition button, then select a different server from the pull-down menu above the 'Audio Mode' and 'Loop Mode' toggles. Or just click on the 'Fastest' button to the right of that pull-down menu, and it should automatically select the fastest instance for you.

Google sometimes bans or throttles Invidious instances, which is why it helps to try using a different instance if you run into problems.
