JW Player doesn’t play youtube video – fix for Error #2036

I have a love/hate relationship with JW Player.  When its working, it is great. But its those nagging issues which drive me completly nuts.

We were trying to get a single youtube video to show on one of our moving strap pages.  The xml playlist section was working fine, but were having trouble getting a single youtube video to play.  It would consistently give me the “Error #2036”.

The solution was as easy as downloading the new version of jwplayer.  As soon as I upgraded – the error went away.  (It appears they were having an issue with that very action.)

The good news is this is fixed.  Good luck – if you have more issues, please contact me and I will try my best to help.
