Is YouTube breaking embedded videos?

In the last few months I've been having increasing trouble watching embedded YTvideos. It seems that YT is deliberately breaking them to force people to watch them on the YT site where they always work fine.

The problems i'm having : about half the time I will get "Video unavailable" (seems related to music videos) and other times the player's controls are not there or I can't click on them so there is no way to jump around in the video, I can only play and pause....

anyone else having these issues?

I hate YT and hope the herd will move on to better platforms...

My sense is that the problems are mostly ad blocking-related.

I haven't noticed that, but I do see many broken links for videos that have been removed from YouTube.
