You Tube, Chrome, and MuseScore [Resolved]

In response to a bug report of mine yesterday about what seems to have been a temporary problem, DanielR (his name doesn't at-sign complete) informed me that Chrome and/or YouTube (both Google products) have implemented a policy change that refuses to embed YouTube videos, which is the present MuseScore technology for coupling score playbacks to sounds produced by other means (e.g., advanced DAW's, Virtual Pipe Organs).  If that's, as Cronkite used to say "the way it is" forever, this is a massive setback.  Not so much for contributors to this site like myself, but for visitors directed to it who will have no idea what's going on when a carefully-produced score refuses to play. I have verified that a YT score which works in FF just hangs in Chrome.

If the report is accurate
, two courses of action present themselves. First, the site page scripting should detect this, and not offer the player bar, but instead, substitute a box saying "You-Tube backed score cannot be played on Google Chrome. Please use a different browser."

Secondly, the policy of prohibiting the MP3 upload connection of arbitrary, non-MS-produced sound to score playback needs reassessment in light of this development.  "Scores with good sound can't be played on Chrome" is a horrific state of affairs.  Is that true for Google Android as well?

This seems to be Google saying "You can't use YT content this way, at least as long as we have anything to say about it", and i wonder when the other shoe will drop and you won't be able to embed YT content at all, in any browser. If the report is accurate, YouTube is no longer a viable solution to pairing MuseScore with more capable performance engines.


SO some of you know that for a while I've been pulling a prank on you... well, since today is the last day of May I thought I kick off summer with a prank reveal.

Are you ready?
Are you?
Are you sure?

I'm @Jenna_Clark116... :P

I have to go somewhere so I won't be on until later. I look forward to seeing your reactions. 

And yes. the picture on the other account is actually me.

I think I figured out how to solve a pianistic problem I had for a long time

When I played ascending scales, I always moved the thumb when the 4th  finger was playing, this resulted in a really bad scale where you could  hear every part of it played as an single "group" of notes, because the  thumb needs some time to move (it's not really long, but enough)
even thought I get much more legato, when I already move it when the 3rd finger is playing...
Is this correct?
I feel damn stupid right now for not noticing this earlier XD
