An explaination.....

Last night I thought I'd cracked the YouTube 'embedding disabled by request' conundrum.

At first, all seemed well; there was a still of the video in the embed window.

Unfortunately, my merriment was cruelly dashed when I clicked on the video to play it.

Have a click yourself.....

TODAY'S MOOD: Thwarted.

SOUNDTRACK: Velvet Revolver - 'Slither'

Well, it would have been :-/

FOOTNOTE: Grrrrrr.....

The Foiled Groover


  1. What happened Archimedes?
    Hope you're better

  2. Wouldn't have a clue how to even attempt to disable that.

  3. It's just code, but perhaps the catalog number of the video is listed in the server's "do not play" list.

  4. My heart would go out to you, Andy, in this time of disappointment, but I am an old man and have no idea what you were talking about.

  5. Well at l;east I hope yur sore throat problem is cleared up by now. Hang in there

  6. It’s as Doug says. The ‘embedding disabled by request’ means that the person who uploaded the video, or possibly the originator/owner of the video, has requested that it should not be streamed to a remote site. There’s nothing you can do about it (other than to provide a link back to it on YouTube).
