Currently, this site embeds YouTube videos as Flash. (see an example: Hidden areas in Portal 2 single player campaign?)

However, this is not the best solution, as now YouTube also supports HTML5, and some users (like me!) prefer to use HTML5 player instead of Flash. Supposedly, it should also work on devices that don't have Flash player (I can't confirm because I don't have one).

The solution seems quite simple: just change the embed code to an iframe, as described at A New Way To Embed YouTube Videos

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for passionate videogamers on all platforms.

Is the HTML5 player now used? –  Chipperyman Feb 17 at 2:50
@Chipperyman: Nope, not yet. Still using the embedded flash player. Tested by opening that link on both desktop and mobile Chrome. –  Denilson Sá Feb 18 at 0:14
