Abrupt YouTube security policy change

Due to abrupt youTube security policy change, my youTube App doesnt work anymore 😦

Possibly due to an exploit, youTube abruptly changed their crossdomain.xml file to only allow access from the youtube.com domain. As a result, YouTube developer API calls no longer work if the SWF exists in a non-youtube.com domain. You can read more on this on Joe’s Blog here.

Woe is me… I think i’ll try to port my app to the new BrightCove API that i came across today. Lets wait and watch 🙂

It seems Flickr did it too… seems like Death of open crossdomain.xmls. Read the post by Renaun Erickson

    You can probably use the Gotuit embeded player for the YouTube videos that you have – it’s an app that bookmarks scenes inside YouTube video and has it’s own embeded video player.

    Thanks for the pointer… Will defenitely take a look at Gotuit. It’ll be great if i can get the app working again.
