Hello Creators,

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 build 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 inconvenience this has caused. Feel free to ask your questions here:

http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&p=11720086#11720086

Because of this, youtube player products will be removed from IMVU to prevent our community from spending credits on products that don't work.

You may be able to create new products using other providers, however, just as in this incident, we have no control over those new products being similarly disabled by 3rd parties in the future.

Best,

Segallion (Todd)

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.

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

Latino players have been affected for a long time. Since the Mixes of music were removed. We had a reason to continue playing through the Youtube Playlist.
And now this news ?!

With more this news, I believe that it has passed from the moment of the IMVU releasing to the rest of the countries the Mixes of music. What do you think? This is within your ability.

But I don't use Chrome, I hate it, and I have always hated how Techstaff of IMVU bend over backwards to make everything compatible for it and configure for IE users last.

So now your going to take radios away, BECAUSE YOU USE CHROME.

Well I don't, nor do many others, so your removing perfectly good working products. IE is on every users pc, so please tell me how these products wont work???

Nothing is impossible. If a base was to receive the links in flash and this links were changed. The base must change to receive links in html5 now. In fact it's MVU that needs to work to upgrade its base. Why flash was already abolished many years ago in the programming for building websites.

Isn't this a flash issue rather than a browser issue?

Might be wrong, but I think the default browser runs the client, imvu have always bent over backwards to force users to chrome

This will be a huge boost for those making trigger music.

What's the plan to counter that?
