Background: I've never accepted all cookies on Stack Overflow. Note: I do not block any cookies.
When I'm viewing this latest blog post for example, it has 7 huge gaps between paragraphs where the YouTube videos should be, which makes it harder to read as I have to scroll the blank space in order to read more content.
And there are six more, about same height.
Browser: Chrome latest stable version, Windows 10 OS.
No errors in developer console, no 400/500 errors in Network tab after reloading the page.
After accepting targeting cookies (Incognito mode just to test it) and reloading, videos appear.
If some cookies are essential for YouTube for some reason, can this please be made clear on the page itself, or even better, show fallback text "Please accept targeting cookies to view the video"?
