Ok I have a guess. Try the insecure version of the page with videos by manually changing the uri from http:// to http:// to see if the videos will show. I am noticing that in that tomato topic, videos are insecure so I suspect mixed content blocking.

If that doesn’t work— What browser and OS? If you open developer tools console, are there error messages?

Glad it worked!

So I don't know how video embedding works on the site... perhaps it can be reconfigured to embed with https, which would work. I guess that is a Mark/whomever question.

The other option for the site might be to set a Content-Security-Policy of upgrade-insecure-requests which will automatically change http videos to https as needed (and given they're from YouTube, YouTube supports https just fine)....

But downgrading is the interim workaround for us users! (Or, on some desktop browsers, like Chrome for me, there is a button to click on a page by page basis to refresh the page with the blocked content allowed....)
