Youtube embedded videos "black bar" picture problem

Post by RobFord » Fri Aug 12, 2016 3:06 am

All embedded youtube videos on a forum powered by phpBB I just see as some black bars picture. This issue has been happening since yesterday. Before all those black bars picture actually showed a youtube embedded video.

This problem isn't only for me but for a lot majority of the people on that forum.

Here is an image how it looks:


Can anyone tell me why this has been happening?

You need to speak to whoever runs the board, phpBB only supplies the software the running of the board is down to the owner. Ask the owner to check with YouTube if they've changed something.
