  • I noticed that when I embed Youtube videos to my blog posts on Chrome browser the preview screen is blank. However, when I use Firefox browser I can see the video preview images.
    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    I also tried to add the direct url:
    but still didn;t work on Chrome

    Then I tested the old embed code from Youtube and that did the trick for Chrome.
    <object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    Any ideas why only the old embed code is showing the preview image on Chrome browser?
