"This video does not allow embedded playback" Youtube error

When I try to play the YouTube video I inserted, I get the message, “This video does not allow embedded playback.” What is the deal?! Does anyone know where to fix this if it is fixable?


One of the professor I’m working with face an issue with youtube videos on prezi. Sometimes students are able to click on the video and watch it and sometimes they can’t, this message appears : this video does not allow embedded playback.
It’s very annoying because sometimes it works  and othertimes it does’nt.

Thanks in advance for your help


Hello, I’m experiencing the same problem. Where can I see the YouTube’s video url so I can paly it directly on YouTube?

Thank you,
