A few months ago we noticed a weird bug where Youtube videos were not working on some sites on some mobile devices. After a lot of investigation, we discovered that sometimes if there is an
<input> tag with a
type value of
search, anywhere on a page, it can break Youtube videos on mobiles.
The solution to this is to simply change any search-type input fields to have
type="text" instead of
type="search". Make sure you check for hidden search fields on responsive sites!
