Why aren't my Youtube videos working on mobiles?

Introduction


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!
