This is similar to our last article about how YouTube videos stopped working with Embedded Video Field on Drupal 6 - except this is for Lightbox2 and affects Drupal 6, 7 and 8.

While we still can't seem to find any announcement from Google, it appears that the old YouTube embed code (which is used by the Lightbox2 module) has stopped working.

Using Lightbox2 to play videos is sort of an edge case, and there wasn't an existing fix for it, so we created a patch on this issue.

We encountered this issue with one of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support customers, so we created a Drupal 6 patch too!

(We created a Drupal 7 patch, and looking at the code the Drupal 8 version appears to be affected also, but since there is no stable release for it, we didn't test it or create a D8 patch.)

To fix: just apply the 6.x-1.x or 7.x-2.x patch!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Can you give me the dates and times of the e-mails? I'm not seeing anything obvious in the mail logs, nor can I find anything sent to the e-mail address you used when posting this comment. :-/ That would be very helpful in debugging the problem, as well as allow me to unsubscribe you (once I can look up your actual e-mail address)!

Please let me know. Thanks!
