YouTube Videos in Chrome and IE

Anyone else having a problem with newly added YouTube videos not displaying within Canvas as expected in Chrome and IE? Currently, when a link to a YouTube video is pasted in to the rich content editor of a page, and then the page is saved, the thumbnail is visible, but upon clicking the play arrow, nothing displays. This is in Chrome and IE.  The work-around is to have students open the video in a new tab outside of Canvas, which is ok in the meantime, but should not be a long term solution.  In Firefox the videos work as expected.


You tube video links added last semester seem to be working fine.  Not sure why this is.


Has anyone else noticed this?
