    Some youtube videos mandate that they must be watched youtube.com, which prevents you from embedding them on your site. Does anyone have a workaround for this? I'm pretty sure one exists, as if you submit these kind of videos as links on Reddit, then they can be streamed from there. That is unless if Reddit has a special agreement with youtube.

    Anyway, thanks for reading.

    In short,there are some options of doing this but you'll waste time on coding and if some API function fail you'll be getting blank screen...i would download that video and upload it somewhere else and stream from there
