No More “Age Verification” Free Video Embedding…

Date: March 23, 2017

I’ve stopped using the embedding code, that sidesteps the YouTube age verification.

Potentially, you’ve noticed that a lot of the embedded videos from YouTube are all giving a playback error?

For years, I’ve used the embedding code that is supposed to let anyone watch a video outright, without worrying about logging into YouTube to verify their age…This was done as a courtesy to my visitors.

As always…YouTube has recently made changes to their website…and from the looks of it, they’ve disabled this method of embedding…whether intentional, or not.

This means for me, that I have already dropped the usage of it…To be honest, it was annoying having to deal with a few things about it, anyway…I’m glad to be done with it.

But, now a ton of embedded videos won’t play on this blog…Fortunately, this is why I’ve always included a direct link to the YouTube video page…So, there should be no real issue…Just click on the link…Watch it on YouTube.

All the best…

02) Ring of Fire On Free Speech TV | Episode 245 – Of Primaries and Politics

“Published on Feb 16, 2016

Tonight, we discuss the primaries. Which candidates are looking good heading into the bloodbath that will be the 2016 election?”


This series [Ring of Fire] has become too much work.

When I first started sharing this series, it was an episode a week, in a nice, tight package.

I was watching this on my Roku…Then I’d find the episode on their YouTube channel, and share it every week…And it was wonderful.

Then they switched to four episodes a week, but they kept their quality up…So, I put in the extra work [even creating a unique template for these posts], and stuck with it…

Well…something went terribly wrong with their Roku stream, and for every fifteen seconds of watching, you had to wait another sixty seconds of buffering…Their stream was unwatchable.

I started watching them directly on YouTube, but then they became too lazy to even publish entire episodes as one video…They started only publishing segments, and making it harder to figure out where each episode begins and ends…

I abandoned sharing this series, at that point…which is a shame…But they turned something great, into way too much work.
