Hi ChristineWJC! I was very sorry to hear you were banned from youtube! Yes, you're right, this video you posted here may be the answer. Just don't forget that our blogs are also ran by google.... oops.... maybe I shouldn't have mentioned that.

Thanks John -

Perhaps it was "site maintenance" (as you mentioned in your other comment here and at Digg) that was going on. However, I haven't heard of anyone else having a problem with embedded YouTube videos at their blogs last night.

I would not know how to check this out - other than some of my friends coming over here and telling me that the same thing happened to them last night.

I still think it was highly suspicious...

Google had suspended some of the Hillary supportors (PUMA blogs) right after Obama was ILLEGALLY GIVEN (IMO) the Democratic primary victory. It took several days for their blogs to be restored. Many of them fled to WordPress and other blog support sites.

I have a WordPress blog, but I don't use it much....yet. If need be, I will transfer over there one day.

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know that the videos have been restored.

One more thing. When "maintenance" is done at Blogger, we usually get a warning. Plus, I am usually able to sign-on and view my Dashboard. In the YouTube situation last night, the videos first said, "This video is no longer available." Then, the embed link went completely blank and there was only a square white spot on my blog. Each time I would do a search, I couldn't log onto the YouTube site - AT ALL!

I still think that this is all very highly suspicious.
