MSNBC videos loading and playing (embeds)
 Hello Daily Kos tech persons:
 MSNBC videos (Rachel Maddow; Joy-Ann Reid; Chris Hayes) used to load and play here @ Daily Kos. No longer. Not since approximately December 6, 2018 \ YouTube versions of MSNBC yes. MSNBC versions - No | What if anything has changed / and can it be fixed to allow MSNBC videos to embed properly once again | example:
  Maybe MSNBC has changed something (?) Perhaps to make it so people will be forced to visit MSNBC (?) Yet MSNBC also posts a select few videos via YouTube, so that doesn't make much sense.
 It could be my computers doing, but that doesn't seems likely.(tried three different browsers: Google Chrome; Microsoft Edge; older IE internet Explorer)
 A couple of years ago I'd asked and got answered by Daily Kos technician Jason Libsch whether Daily Kos would make embedding MSNBC videos possible here, and Jason (and perhaps other tech too) said it was being worked an and indeed made that happen. It was very cool
But once again. MSNBC videos no longer embed / load or play here
Hopefully this is a work in progress and I'm just making noise about something that is already being worked on.
Hope so
  Thank you tech persons

    Hello, and thanks for asking.
    We'll investigate. It is quite possible that MSNBC has changed something on their end. If that's the case, we can't promise in advance that it's something we can accommodate. We'll see what's possible.
    Appreciate your support of the mission of the site!
