YouTube Videos embed, but don't play (3 posts)

    Hi everyone! I spent already about 5 hours at least trying to figure out how to embed a video. After a while i found iframe (simply get the code from you tube) and managed to have embedded videos. Day 1, everything was perfect. Day 2- videos simply stopped playing... They are still there, you can see them, but clicking the play button simply won't work... The only thing besides adding new posts that I have done in the meantime is install the Facebook plugin, but I don't see what this has to do with the youtube video. Here is a link to a post, which has such a video in it: http://bgvseznaiko.com/home/?p=643

    Site is still fresh and in progress, so don't be mean about the way it looks :)

    Thank you in advance!!!!

    P.S. Forgot to mention- site is hosted on GoDaddy and I am using WordPress 3.4.2

  2. YouTube's having a bad day, today especially, thanks to the SpaceJump (it's outright down for me in the MidWest US).

    In your case, the play button isn't even clickable. So if all you did was install FaceBook, remove it :) See if that helps.

    It seems that Facebook is indeed the problem here. Tested it by activating/deactivating and guess what: when activated videos won't play but when de-activated, videos are just fine... So I just posted a new question in plugins and hope someone will resolve. Will post back here again afterwards
