Hi Murray. I noticed that tubepress isn’t working on gh.info and ght2. Youtube made an update last month and I think it has affected tubepress – I found this: http://community.tubepress.com/topic/5617-the-death-of-the-youtube-api-v2-and-its-impact-on-tubepress/

Right now it looks like Tubepress isn’t playing feeds from the Youtube user account, but is still playing feeds from playlists, at least on Greenheart.info. I’m going to create playlists and update on Greenheart.info to see if that helps, but looks like there may be other complications, at least according to the latest update from Tubepress.

    We've disabled CDN on the video pages to overcome Access-Origin ( CORS ) issues on the media pages and we're trying version 4 of tubepress on the staging server, but results are very unstable - it might be a good idea to consider hiding the video pages on both sites until the plugin and API are more compatible with each other.

    The playlists linked to from Youtube are public and I do believe that they have embedding enabled. The playlists appear to be working on Greenheart.info's video page, so I don't think we need to disable the video pages. I need to still update GHT2's video page though.

    TubePress have advised that we will need to enter a Google API Key to resolve these issues - https://community.tubepress.com/topic/5633-how-to-enter-your-google-api-key-into-tubepress/ Please provide us with the API Key and we will insert and test this solution.

The API key has fixed the issue – along with the upgrade to the latest version of the tubepress plugin: http://ghintl.staging.wpengine.com/about/media/videos

We will update the plugin on the live version of GH.info and GHT2 and enter the API Key in the settings on both sites – this should allow the video pages to be be restored to their previous functionality.

    Looks great - thank you!
