The Scratch YouTube video player is a YouTube player hosted on the Scratch servers, announced by JSO on the 2nd of February 2012. All links to YouTube from the Scratch Forums automatically change to the Scratch YouTube player, instead of YouTube, to hide comments, suggested videos, and other content which may be not appropriate for Scratch. The Scratch player does not repeat videos.
This change of web address uses a DjangoBB censor. This means when certain text, such as "youtube.com" or "youtuberepeat.com" is typed, it converts the text to the Scratch page text.

The first bug reported was that the title was set to "https://youtube.com/devicesupport" while viewing any video because on May 10, 2015, YouTube discontinued the old viewer to upgrade it which affected many websites, including the Scratch YouTube Video Player because it was unsupported. Another serious bug followed which made all links to the Scratch YouTube Player result in the Scratch Video Player 404 error; despite what video was linked. All of these bugs were fixed on July 15, 2015.
