Hey all,

Just an FYI, we (YouTube) are in the process of updating our oembed response to send an as3 swf instead of the older as2 swf.

Ideally, if oembed lives up to the hype there should be no issue :), as we are simply changing the url to the player swf, but I wanted to send out a note just in case anyone notices anything funny going on.

The only difference is the player url will change from:  


to:

Hi Geoff,

Great news that you guys are updating to the new player. I'm running
into an issue now, though. It seems that iOS can no longer recognize
that the video is a playable youtube video. Changing the *e* back to
*v* seems to fix this.

Yes, unfortunately this is a known issue. Apple knows about our change and is expected to update their Safari app to recognize the new urls soon (though this will obviously require an iOS update...)
