YouTube videos not playing on iOS devices

Hello I’ve not been able to get linked/embedded YouTube videos play on iOS devices (Safari, Chrome) since the most recent WP update. I’m able to view videos when I use the Puffin browser on my iOS device - Puffin allows flash applications to run on iOS devices.


Tapping the play icon on the video doesn’t trigger an action. The link on the video when held prompts me to open in YouTube. I’d like the videos to play within the page on iOS devices.

Please advise.


Do they work as you expect them with a different theme? Somehow I don’t think this is theme related.
