Looks like it works here, but not in WC.  Strange.

@JohnD

I was able to post the link -- as a link, not embedded -- to the WC programs and playlists thread. 

Using iPhone and Safari.

I've updated the forum software to the most current version, as well as an overdue update of the PHP engine.  Let's hope that between the two of them, this intermittent but nagging problem is resolved. 

Sorry for the delay - life gets in the way at times.

After receiving another report, I was finally able to gather enough information, replicate the issue, and find the source of the problem .... the one I was able to catch.

Our servers employ several layers of security and one of the many layers was interpreting the 'embed video' as a cross-site scripting (XSS) attempt and returned the 403 error.  It took a bit of digging, but I was able to locate the event in the log.  I believe I have neutralized that particular rule (leaving the other 1,000+ in-place) and my testing indicates that the 'problem' is gone.

Thanks for your patience.
