On my PC I created a YouTube music video link (in another forum) and it works as intended via my desktop PC. When I access that same forum and link, the YouTube page appears with all its usual content, but the main viewing window for the selected video has a still frame (like a photo) of the/from the video with a black horizontal banner across the center of it stating, "This video is not available." Out of curiosity (thinking there might be some sort of file ID anomaly) I did a search on YouTube for the same video on the iPad (Pro) and surprisingly, the video was NOT among the search results! Weird. I have no idea why this video would not be included. OK - I can see, then, why the link would not work via my iPad if somehow the video was excluded from iPad access. I don't know why/how this could be. Check it out for yourselves. Here's the complete title of the YouTube video. Play it on you desktop and then on your iPad, if you can find it; you may have to first creat a link via your desktop computer (copied & pasted link, below): Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird - 7/2/1977 - Oakland Coliseum Stadium (Official) Here's the active link: PS - OK - I can see the YouTube video embedded here and can play it on my iPad from this thread. the YouTube file nomenclature ...QxIWDmmqZzY is the same as posted on the other forum (no video screen shows there, simply the active typed out link). Can't figure it out.
