since the latest update the video that is embedded in the full width slide show of our site causes an automatic pop-up window featuring the youtube video ON YOUTUBE.
How can this be avoided?
Having a youtube tab / window opening automatically when visiting the site is very annoying.
Is a self-hosted video the only workaround? Is this a legal requirement now?
For the moment I have replaced the video URL with http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/... , but this is just an awkward quick fix as well, as the video does not play anymore now.
I would love, just like before, having a video (hosted on youtube) playing when visiting the site – and I’d definitley like to avoid pop-up windows.
Is this a general GDPR issue?
Is there a way to fix this, other than hosting the entire video on the site?
… after the 4.6.2 update the youtube window does not pop up anymore, so feel free to close this ticket for now. however, we will have to look for a solution that avoids youtube.
Glad you got it working for you! :)
