I use to wonder why people would quote a video post and write "for iPhone", "for iPad", or "for iPotato". Mine always played the posted video fine.

Around a week ago it stopped playing any imbedded videos. Now I have to use the quoted links.

I haven't done anything different to my iPad either.

Mine started playing embedded videos when I updated to 8.02

Same issue, even stranger is that refreshing the page and hitting play quickly usually works.

Mine did the same. I have to click on the link when someone quotes it

Same here...WTF.

I haven't downloaded the new iOS, waiting on feedback from GD. It looks like I may skip it
Link Posted: 10/3/2014 7:03:30 AM EST
Same, but I never did an update to my OS, it just happened this week.
Link Posted: 10/3/2014 7:07:42 AM EST
My Samsung G2 did the same, but I broke it earlier this week and replaced it and the new one plays the embeded videos again.

Mine never used to play them, started working perfectly after the 8.0.2 update, now today all of a sudden has stopped again.

Annoying would be an understatement.

That's the beauty of iPads, they just work.

What you are experiencing isn't a "bug," it's a FEATURE!!

When I did the latest software update, my Ipad became slow with long lag time between execution of commands. It shows a lot of pics as question marks.

Also might have something to do with my wonky overseas internet that keeps switching me into random foreign languages.

I think my Ipad is not long for this world. The freezing up for 5 seconds since that last software update is driving me nuts.

I dunno. Mine has always played imbedded videos and still does.

My iOS 7 success rate was about 50/50. My iOS 8 success rate has been 100% so far.

on my 8.0 ipad 3 the linked video displays in a vertical aspect ratio and will only play if i mash the play button, them it plays subset in the vertical window


The ipad view looks like this while reading the page



this is the view while playing:




This same page content looks like this on a mac running safari under Mavericks:



The link followed from a Mac resolves to:

NOT
here is an Imbed from the mac link:

IMHO youtube changed something on their back end
and some trickery coded here on video is now failing to work

This Ios 8.0.2 shows up in the update reminder thing, but when I click on it nothing happens, like it won't update.

My iPad has gone into s l o w mode since I installed the 8.02 update. I'm going to search how to restore to the 7 OS.

It is a ipad2.

It will ask me for my pin, I put it in and the accept terms thing comes up, click yes on it and nothing happens.

Ah.

While the iPad 2 may be compatible with the iOS 8 update, it's advisable that you don't upgrade. Word is that the bottom of the list (iPhone 4S and iPad 2) run incredibly slow with the new software.

I don't think youtube changed anything. I have an older ipad 2 on os version 6.1.3, and I have never had an issue with embedded video. I will not upgrade the os since my ipad works fine with this os version.
