MediaEmbed Plugin Bug?

Hi! I’m using the MediaEmbed plugin to embed a YouTube video. It can be seen on my site here: I’m noticing a couple of problems that appear in all popular browsers:

  1. There’s a black band across the top of the video before it is played.
  2. You need to click it twice in order to play it.

Anyone else experience these issues or know how to fix them?

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

i suggest creating an issue on the MediaEmbed plugin repo:

Thanks for the suggestion. I just did this here:

I’m curious if there is a different plugin people are using to embed YouTube videos or if most people are using MediaEmbed?

Hi, what about using simple html? Not so userfriendly like a plug, but without a bug:
Look here
And here

Wow, I had no idea that was possibly just using HTML5. Works great. Thanks so much.
