Re: Jump directly to embedded YouTube video

Is there a way for developers to specify that the HTML5 YouTube player
should be used for embedded content when the browser supports it?
Last time when I was looking at the YouTube accessibility (some months
ago) was that the user had to specify th html5 preference by going to
www.youtube.om/html5.
The developer could not code the video with instructions to prefer the
html5 player.
I know this does not answer the question, I will take a look at my
documentation ad see if the iFrame with Voiceover could be the problem
here.
Thanks
