For some reason, NoScript's click-to-play placeholders can't be clicked through for html5 video on youtube, unless you disable them for all content types.

I've contacted Giorgio about this. I still need to get him a NoScript config that causes the issue in a vanilla Firefox though.

It looks like this issue is either intermittent, video-specific, or fixed by youtube?

I can't get it to happen anymore on my favorite test video (

This appears and disappears with some regularity. The core issue might be that we need a better way to provide click-to-play than NoScript's DOM tricks... I am going to close this for now, since it seems to work again.
