Hi Mauricio,

I have the feeling the sound recording copyright owner has blocked all available videos that contain the song from being played on last.fm :(

Hi Pellitero, i added a video and it is not a good one (sorry, I usually check them out before I add them) and there is not a good one to replace it with so could you please take if off this song page for me?  Thank you.

Oh! I don't feel so bad now and it says 'track unavailable' when I tried to play it. Thanks for getting back to me Pellitero.

Hey, guys, after your last update I could not add none of the videos for all the songs on your website. It's not just block of copyright owner.

~ Could be if you have an adblocker running -   Some adblockers are preventing the YouTube IFrame API library from loading. I've no idea why they've started doing this and it seems to be happening across multiple sites, not just Last.fm. Please speak to your adblocker vendor and ask them to quit it.

~ Vevo videos are blocked from being played on Last.fm  Other videos might not be embeddable, either due to a setting applied by the uploader, or rights restrictions often applied by the copyright owner. The new form now tries to play the video before accepting it, so you're safe to try adding videos from anywhere. If it gets through the test, it should play OK on the track page.
