I have added it to the videos, but have not had a consistent student response to test it with validity. Hopefully it will not occur again.  If this is a temporary fix, does it have an expiration, or is this a current work around because of setting changes YouTube is imposing?

Hi Karen,

Okay, thank you. Let's wait until your students reply before closing this one.

What I mean by temporary is that we are getting some AMAZING features ready for SafeShare which will automatically apply this fix (and add quite a bunch of neat improvements). Would you like to take a sneak peek? :-)

I am always interested in new features to products that I use all the time!

Hi Karen,

We are very sorry, but unfortunately we had to change a few things due to YouTube.

However there's an easy fix for this (which unfortunately has to be done manually). If you append "?clean=1" to the end of a SafeShare.TV URL, it will work.

For example:

https://safeshare.tv/x/ss580b9b63db925

becomes:

https://safeshare.tv/x/ss580b9b63db925?clean=1

What it does is that it replaces the YouTube player by a clean one (no ads, no related videos, no YouTube logo, just the video).

Can you please give that a try in one of your SafeViews and let me know?

P.S.: THIS IS JUST TEMPORARY.

Best Regards,

Diogo Alves @ SafeShare.TV
