That's interesting as it seems to be working for others. Maybe @lucky760 could have possible insight. Im totally curious why this is happening to you.

Are you able to view the video here? This is what I get when I try to play it.

Weird. That looks like a blocked message, except site-specific, and I've never seen that before.

The video plays fine for me. What's the URL of the page when you see that error? Also, where are you located, geographically?

I'm viewing it from the main page (http://videosift.com/video/Beastie-Boys-Vs-The-Muppets). It plays on YouTube directly. I'm in the US.

Edit: I just fired up Tor Browser and it plays on this page from an IP address in Luxembourg. Is YouTube restricting things now to certain states?

It must be something specific to your setup, like perhaps something installed on your computer or in your browser. Have you tried it with another browser?

I suspected an ad or script block addon doing it, but videosift is whitelisted on those on my desktop browser. Completely disabling them didn't fix it, and my notebook, which runs Linux, has Firefox and the same addons was also doing it. It turns out it was the EFF's Privacy Badger addon doing it, which I only installed a couple of days ago. That's weird since it only blocks 3rd party trackers. I wonder if UMG is trying to pass some kind of 3rd party cookie through the video embed which is setting it off.
