Youtube clips

The embedding of Youtube clips into posts is no longer working for me. Anyone else?
(URL still works, though)

I've realised what is causing the problem for me, Nicola.

Whenever I click on a YOUTUBE link to get the URL I want to imbed, it shows as https://www.youtube.com/....

If I remove the "s" - then it works!

Also, I only get this behaviour with Firefox. Chrome is OK.

As it only affects me (presumably coz I'm using Linux) + I can get round it, consider it solved/ a non-problem.

Whether or not the "https" affords the viewer extra protection is another matter.
