YOUTUBE players - problem explanation from creator

I am one of creators of YouTube players for IMVU.
I am sorry for my possibly bad english, and I am sorry that I did not respond individually to all users and creators who sent me messages in last 2 days.
You read this because you probably noticed that any youtube player on IMVU (no matter who did it) is currently not working.
Many of you used YouTube players to watch videos together for years and I must sadly inform that this experience of IMVU seems to be over.

What is really happening?
Is it IMVU fault?
Is it possible to fix by creators?
No, IMVU has no effect on this (you can check out older versions of IMVU client) and there is also nothing that can be done by YouTube creators to make YouTube working again.
IMVU is offering Flash technology for creators who can do interactive and synchronized between users things.
This technology opened possiblity to create games, media players and other fun things for IMVU.
The problem is that YouTube service stopped to support their streams for external custom players in Flash technology.
Currently only YouTube team can bring back YouTube videos to IMVU, if they change their minds, but I would not believe too much that it will happen.
Note that other things than YouTube players, so things like for example radio station stream players are still working.

How to bring YouTube back to IMVU?
The only thing we may try is to show YouTube team how important YouTube is for IMVU community.
The more votes we will get, the higher chance that YouTube team will notice the problem and maybe consider changes.
All you have to do is login to YouTube website and put vote on main post (and their replies if you want) in link below.
If you spread the word to our IMVU community by telling your friends, repulse, reply to your customers, the more votes we can get.
Vote here: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/youtube/hHiBw0F-4MI

Additional information for users and creators who are using or derived YouTube players made by me in the past.
I will replace my YouTube players with alternative synchronized radio (many music genres included) and mp3 stream (dropbox support) player.
To see changes, you will have to clear your IMVU cache.
Alternative player (known as multi player) will support YouTube streams, but as you know they will currently not playing on IMVU.
If something will change and YouTube service will back, then you will be able to play it, and in such case I will bring back original players to you.
MP3 Dropbox video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OV5ixXpmLfA
Note that I was not able to record sound from IMVU with my recording software, so there is no sound in the video.
Note also that player is just software like media players for phone or Windows (for example Winamp) and user is responsible for music he or she is playing with it.
You can play your own music creations or a lot of free underground music that uses Creative Commons or Public Domain licences and are often shared by their original artists on soundcloud and other services, but playing commercial music without proper DJ license or other rights is illegal.

Thank you all for positive messages in last years and to those users who understand current situation where IMVU and creators have no effect.
I apologize all users who are angry and will now start to hate me.

Thank you. I was wondering what was going on. I haven't been able to play the youtube players for a couple of days now.

Also, my piano no longer works that plays the 4 hours of non-stop piano music. Is this also related?

My radio does work but that is the only thing currently that works.

Thank you so much to explain for us what is going on and of course i wont hate you, its not your fault.

This new version will let us synchronize with our friends in a chat on client? I loved to dance listening songs with my fiance, its more cool listen together the same song, because we can talk about the song, play to each others...

Thank you so much to create so nice products ^^

Yes, radio and mp3 streaming from dropbox or other server that allows links to direct files are synchronized between users.
Just be sure that other users cleared their cache to get fresh update.
Example demo song: https://www.dropbox.com/s/brqu08ysa45otwl/test.mp3?dl=0
Dropbox offers 1 or 2 GB of space for free.

This certainly isn't your fault. It's very sad that once again we are losing out on music that we have enjoyed here. First the triggered music......now this. I, for one, do not like the IMVU music system of mixes so the YouTube player was a great option. You did great work and I know we have all loved and appreciated it. Those who get hateful don't realize that we are ALL going to hurt over this. We feel bad that our products no longer function but we also feel bad that we can no longer earn credits from our creations. We all lose...once again.
I wish IMVU would just come up with a music system that truly works for all of us. Thank you, Speed.....for all your hard work.

Thanks for the information. I saw this after I had messaged you about the players. I created all the Dsmart Tvs & I figured with Youtube recent changes, it may boil down to them being the issue. I will let all my customers and group members know about this and thanks again for your research into the problem.

Yes and thank you for coming and make a special thread into the forums to explain to the community what is going on....
This is what i called = competence

Seems that you are caring for customers more then Staff, or IMVU, that does not explain anything..

P>S
yesterday, i send you a PM and i stick with it...i am sure that it is the reason Smile


OK, now about your suggestion and what IMVU is doing, with the ( offering their own Flash technology ) that is for tracking and putting some other cookies to fallow all of each customer with it.
I alway refuse those things, i dont except that...

So, no more Youtube for me.. too bad.



and thank you again for the concern about the community... now , later i will go and talk to the boss of youtube and i will know what is really going on.

It is very sad NEWS for me and all other INDIANS too I guess because most of us depend on these players for BOLLYWOOD MUSIC we are not able to hear any BOLLYWOOD songs now as a contract between IMVU & BOLLYWOOD fell apart, due to which we also cannot purchase any song from the music store. I myself own few models of Youtube player designed by you. I feel it is a devastating decision on the part of YOU TUBE to bring the whole thing down. But since it is down now I feel that IMVU should restart the MUSIC STORE for INDIA. It will be a much appreciated move to exclude INDIA form the list of countries where the MUSIC STORE is banned. I am also feeling sympathy for you, because I know you have spend so much money & time on creating all this, using meshes and all, models after models & even upgrading it. I used to be a creator once but I realized that being a creator is a risky business for you never know what will happen & when it happens ur not ready for it. I do hope you will get compensation for your loses, before bunch of idiots start flagging those players.
