    Hi - I have the same thing described by other users: the videos do not appear and I get the error "The YouTube ID of XXXXXXX is invalid." From reading the forum I have tried:

    * had the latest version, but deleted and reinstalled in case
    * Tried alternat code youtube_video
    * Jetpack is not installed
    * I even tried the same videos with the same plugin and commands on a different WP installation and they work fine

    Here is the website: http://www.mtbakerharley.com
    and: http://www.mtbakerharley.com/staff-bowling-night/

    Thanks!

    Update: I needed to get the videos back up and running on this site, so only this pages is now using the plugin: http://www.mtbakerharley.com/staff-bowling-night/

    I've used the youtube embed code for the others. Still hoping for a solution.

    Can you give me the details of how you embedded the video on that page (i.e. copy and paste, I'm assuming the shortcode, to here)?

    Hi Dan - This is the only code in the html editor for that page:

    [youtube_video]0pu4BBbgUfM[/youtube_video]

    BTW, this started recently, perhaps with the 3.3 upgrade.

    I assume you've set youtube_video up as a secondary shortcode?

    I've done the same and added the above to one of my own posts and it displays fine.

    In the YouTube Embed options screen there's an option named "YouTube API". Try changing this to "API should not be used", save it - does the video appear now?

    David.

    Hi David - Changing the API setting seems to have fixed it. Thank you!
