Hello everyone,

As some of you know, YouTube player products have stopped working in Classic IMVU.

This change was caused by Google/YouTube and is therefore out of our control.

Google no longer wishes to support Flash for external players and they are in favor of other avenues like HTML5 or HTML6.

This is a good reminder that any third party tool can include a dependency that is outside the control of IMVU. Creators of these products will have the ability to point their products to other video service providers if they choose.

We are sorry for any conveniences this has caused. We feel your pain. This was a surprise to us, too. Feel free to ask your questions here.

Since you are removing them, will you be financially reimbursing people who bought them?

I have already made mine all Display Only with a link to a forum - which is going to go away tomorrow - explaining what happened.

I purchased a vast number of youtube players to suit different rooms and different décor. Am I going to be refunded for these broken products?

And, like always, Imvu shuts the stable door AFTER the horse has bolted.
We already know the players are broken.

While I can understand that this is something that is out of the hands of IMVU. I would think as a sign of good faith that they would be decent enough to reimburse those that are effected by this change.

Kind of like how they tend to be decent enough if someone buys something and it later gets rerated and that user is no longer able to use it.

Just my 2 cents of course.

I don't think IMVU will reimburse them.

No, we have no plan to reimburse at this time.

Sadly, no matter how much IMVU explains that it isn't their fault, people will complain.

No, they shouldn't have to reimburse you, they have no control over it. IMVU would have to find every single YouTube player product and reimburse hundreds of thousands of product purchases.

Further, people should not petition YouTube/Google to add support back. Flash is dying, and rightfully so. It is old, filled with security issues, and is far outperformed by HTML5 nowadays.

The smart move would be for IMVU to create permit some HTML5 player functionality for the clients.

In the first beta versions of IMVU NEXt radio players were built in to the client.

I fully understand now. It's a wonderful product and got many years of enjoyment from it. Since I did use it often, I don't expect any compensation from IMVU.

If they can, I rather they put in an effort to restore it. That would be greatly appreciated!

Since this was something that Google/You Tube did, I don't expect IMVU to reimburse me for the You Tube Player that I bought.
