WebinarJam Error: Watch this on YouTube

This article is for: 

YouTube has some restrictions that can prevent videos from being embedded on other sites including within the WebinarJam and EverWebinar programs. This means someone watching your video will likely see: "Error Loading YouTube" or "Watch This Video on YouTube" both indicate that embedding has likely been turned off.

Where You'll See this With WebinarJam

If you login as an attendee or your attendees say they see "Watch this video on YouTube. Playback on other websites has been disabled by the video owner" your account has been impacted.





If you see your test video, then all is well with your account.
