Complaint about WordPress, problem with embedded youtube vids April 24, 2013Posted by larry in Uncategorized.
I have a number of complaints about Word press the most important of which is that they don’t care about complaints where certain features that once worked no longer work as they don’t transparently show you how to access their complaints procedure or how to get around the problem. I work in Firefox and so my complaints refer to that browser only. I don’t know what happens with other browsers.
First, a prpblem for which WordPress is not responsible for but which they have said nothing to their users about is that Firefox has problems displaying embedded youtube videos in the newer versions of Firefox outside of the youtube context. This problem is not universal but it is quite consistent.
Second, possibly related to this but WordPress does not seem to be able to easily embed youtube videos at all in one’s post in Firefox even after going through some arcane procedure that does not work. WordPress used to be able to do this easily. WordPress, their comments about how they care to the contrary, do not seem to do so.
The complaint section is worse than useless, unless your problem is of a legal nature. This is transparent and easily accessible. nothing else about the complaint process is.
