I just added updated remarks to a couple of old posts to show how you can continue to use some tricks (like audio-only embeds or colored borders) for YouTube videos, since they don't work properly with the latest version of YouTube (they updated their code to version 3 last year). Basically, you need to force YouTube to render those videos with the older version of their code by changing
version=2 in the embed code (or adding
&version=2 if no version number is specified).

Because of the way LJ works, if you're making any changes to the code of embedded videos in existing LJ posts (as I just did), you need to remove the
<lj-embed> tags from the post before hitting the "Save Entry" button. This forces LJ to recognize the changes made to the embed code.
