    Interesting I have noticed this week..... when i force the HD option in settings then the video just shows a Black screen..... it was not like that before.

    I have checked with a series of contacts they have suffered the same problem.

    We're looking into this. There are some mentions of this kind of issue outside the scope of this plugin. We are, however, looking to see if we can address the situation on our end and will also notify the folks at YouTube about it.

    Thanks,

    Here's more information:

    As of February 20th, 2014, there is an internet-wide Google/YouTube bug for forcing HD playback. It affects all WordPress and non-WordPress sites.

    We've notified Google of the problem and hope to hear that they've fixed it soon. In the meantime, turning off the HD option in the plugin's settings page should solve your problem.

    Also, if you have the time and a gmail address, you could click on the star for this exact Google support issue at Google Code:

    https://code.google.com/p/gdata-issues/issues/detail?id=6009

    The more people star it, the more resources Google puts into fixing their error.

    Finally, all users of this plugin will be alerted when we hear back about a fix.

    Thanks,
    EmbedPlus Team
