YouTube Videos Fail to Play on iOS

Question

I get the following error message when playing YouTube videos on iOS:
"This video is not encoded to playback on this device". Why does the Ooyala player fail to play YouTube videos?

Answer

YouTube sends out only Flash streams even when using our HTML5 player. If you want one of your YouTube videos to be played in HTML5, you will need to upload it to Backlot first.
