Is it possibly a flash issue (likely flash not enabled or “load unsafe scripts” in chrome? I could not tell what browser you are using and I know YouTube is supposed to be using HTML5 for stuff there are still videos that only play with flash for me.
Not logged into NewsBlur currently but I think Firefox has something similar about loading insecure items that you may need to disable on the site (or globally like I did). It is also possible it is an issue with the feed or something but given that some work and others don’t that is why my guess was on flash.
Split, layout left and single story. If i click into “list” they do then show and if i get back to split again they still show. If i click away to another feed and then come back the problem comes back.
If I add style=“padding-top: 50%;” in split mode the videos appears. Specifying a height for it also works. Removing absolute positioning for .fluid-width-video-wrapper also makes it appear. Oh CSS is funny…
I’ve got this as well, feed view with story layout being split & single story. It doesn’t matter if I’m viewing a single feed, my Youtube folder or All site stories. Happens both on Firefox and on Chrome as well. Personally I’d be happy with just seeing the thumbnail, since I’m gonna go to Youtube to view the video anyway, but I’m probably in the minority with this.
OK, this has now been fixed. It required some refactoring for how stories are displayed in all views (and when switching between them). I fixed a couple other bugs having to do with single-story mode as well. Let me know immediately if you spot anything out of the ordinary. Just make sure to reload NewsBlur.
