YouTube embeds no longer playing embedded
Tested on: Chrome 45.0.2454.85, Edge 20.10240.16384.0, Firefox Developer Edition 42.0a2 (2015-09-08)
Youtube embeds are now acting like a normal hotlink and going to that video's Youtube page instead of playing in the embedded player. Example:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vpVeJqx7gI
EDIT: Perhaps not? I am going to test again.
Molten variables hiss and roar. On my mind-forge, I hammer them into the greatsword Epistemology. Many are my foes this night.

Chrome Version 45.0.2454.85 m and Firefox 35.0.1 and 40.0.3 (I hadn't updated in a while)
videoid is a string, and pattern is a RegExp. So, isn't that supposed to be !pattern.test(videoid)?
However, that's just the error when I click the play button. Not sure if that's the same problem with the whole preview image or not, since I haven't tried digging into that.
Some still work but most of them are non functioning
firefox 40.0.3 here
No pattern as of yet, and Chrome's multitude of errors that pop when the Chromecast extension is not installed are making looking at the debug console hard. I will try FF Dev after I've slept and go from there.
I am getting this on Chrome on mobile, but desktop Chrome is still OK
Edit: Scratch that. Two minutes later everything is linking to youtube again. Weird.
When I click an embedded YouTube video on the mobile site the link only goes to a jpg of the preview image
It doesn't even take me to YouTube itself
I'm on desktop though, I don't know if the mobile issue that Grey Ghost is referring to was fixed.
the two apple videos (starting with the one with jeff goldblum) on page 65 don't work. they link to youtube instead of embedding
the video on this page of a traffic cam embedded correctly when clicked on
This happened in FF and Chrome, I checked both after I saw it happen
Amazingly enough, the exact opposite happened for me. Both apple videos on page 65 there embedded properly, and the traffic cam video on page 66 linked instead of embedded.
One uses "https:// youtu.be /luFgV4nuSxc" (without the spaces obviously)
The other uses the old style link of https:// youtube.com /v=luFgV4nuSxc or whatnot
This shows up every time videos act as a link, it never shows up for videos that embed. Seems to reference global.js line 1231, and videoid gets defined a few before that at line 1223.
You bros are clearing you cache out, yeah?
If I quote it and replace the t= part of the link, it works fine.
Happening across a full reformat and a few workstations. Might be a chrome issue, since that's the only real common thing between them.
the format of that broken video is
but when I go to the video and link from the time, youtube gives me this: which works:
so how do you get a URL in that format, originally?
