The bad news: Yeah, it is Chrome problem when playing Youtube player
The good news: It only happens to profile-both classic and current, that using &version=2 Youtube player. Those who are using AS3 player (default) is not affected.

The temporary answer?? Go switch from AS2 to AS3 player


What's AS2 and AS3 and how do you change it?

Dont worry about that stuff, it should be fixed by now It is broken again...

As for which is AS2 and AS3. AS2 is the old Youtube player, indicated by usage of &version=2 in the media URL. AS3 is the default new youtube player, pretty much same like one used in the official site.

I hope this page might answer you guys and anyone else
http://www.gaiaonline.com/profiles/reinasachiko4/36624831/
test that page on all your browsers to see which can load which version
It does not matter whether it is Classic or Current profile version for this case

ADD: That should also explains the difference of AS2 and AS3 version I am talked about previously

But where do you put the video's url that you wish to play in the AS3
code? That one video seems to be the only one working.

depends on the profile version you are using

v1 Classic:
http://www.gaiaonline.com/account/profileprefs
Put the media url into the multimedia text-box, and save

v2 Current:
Add a media panel into your profile > Edit it > insert the URL > save

I'm sorry, I phrased that wrong.
I have a v2 current with a media box and I tried using the AS3 code in the media
box but when I went to change the video url at the end it went back to the white box.
The only thing that would work was the original code on the profile but I unfortunately
do not need that playlist.

Just to give news:

as per March 17th, 2014

Youtube AS2 aka googleapis.youtube.com and/or &version=2 have been confirmed able to run again on Chrome browser.

This has been tested with latest Chrome update.

===
So to TS, you might want to let your Chrome run idle a bit so the auto-update runs behind in background process or you can manually check it using this command into your address bar
chrome://chrome/
