Where was the quality assurance?

Are you suggesting that Ubuntu is shipping a youtube plugin that is not supposed to work?

In any case, this was working in the past. I don't know if the plugin was broken during the Lucid upgrade or if the breakage is due to some change in youtube, but the point is that it should either be fixed or even removed, if fixing is not possible.
