Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I don't understand why you don't include a link to the YouTube clip above or below the embed macro, given that Firefox has a problem with the old version of the embed code use by the youtube macro for the European Tribune.

I didn't think of it until a couple of days ago--(me slow!)--next time, links to follow pics.

given that Firefox has a problem with the old version of the embed code use by the youtube macro for the European Tribune.

Is it just a scoop/ET problem?

You mean changing the code of the youtube macro would solve the problem ?

I'm sure the big problem with freezing videos on 2 seconds wouldn't be solved by that change, as till you've killed that window, and sometimes till you've restarted firefox, you still get the problem when you've opened an individual comment as its own page, or independently on youtube.

I never had any trouble with unfreezing one in YouTube itself. As soon as I switched to iPod format, it unfroze.

From what I can see, changing to iPod videos (adding &fmt=18 to the end of the v= string) fixed all the frozen ones from here that I could track down on YouTube through text search and get to freeze inside YouTube ...

... now, I've never seen the freeze anywhere else that I embed videos, and those would be places where I copy and paste the embed code from YouTube rather than use a scoop macro ... but that could just be that I never happened to have used one of the videos that freeze.
