    Does anyone have embedded YouTube videos on their QRZ Bio page that play successfully in a frame within the page without sending the viewer totally offsite to the YouTube pages? All I wish to accomplish is for my YouTube video to play within a frame on my Bio page without leaving the QRZ page. Anything I do with the iframe insertion function always results in being dumped totally off onto YouTube and stuck there, no matter what data I edit into the iframe .
    I can't find any examples on others' Bio pages that duplicate what I wish to accomplish. I found some with YouTube "imbeds" on their Bio pages, but clicking on those imbeds also send the viewer totally off QRZ to YouTube, so maybe this isn't possible due to QRZ site permissions or those of YouTube?
    I apologize if this issue has already been figured out and it may be a simple solution, but I have been unable to find any threads addressing this that actually conclude in a "problem solved" scenario. Any PC or HTML experts out there had this experience or have some suggestions?

    I also have this problem. Iframe stayed grayed out with only YouTube button in the middle and yes, it redirects to YouTube site completely. I wasn't able to find solution to it yet.

    Kind Regards

    Thank you for your reply, Lukasz. Your experience with the issue appears exactly as mine does.
    Your comment further helps verify my suspicions that the issue is likely a restriction imposed by either the QRZ page or YouTube server, and therefore cannot be surmounted by us the subscribers.
    If I ever find a workaround, I will let you know.

    that link gives me the error message also. ( using win10 Brave or Firefox browsers )

    I just checked mine, and it also takes me to ( full screen ) youtube.
