    Yes, there's certainly something wrong with the YouTube widget. I tested it both in a clone of your form and in one of my own forms and got the same result you did.

    I've submitted a ticket.

    Thanks for informing us and our apologies for any inconvenience which may have been caused.

    While our developers look into this, you can use the iFrame Embed widget. I've tested it and it displays the videos okay.

    To use the iFrame Embed widget with YouTube Videos, click on Embed and copy the parameters indicated below to the URL, Height and Width boxes in the iFrame Embed Settings:

    After that, click Finish and save the form.

    I have been aving the same issue with my recent forms. More inportantly when I open the forms now the old space for the youtube widget is a blank gray square with the 404 error and it will not allow me to delete it.
