All the YouTube videos embedded in Facebook do not play when in HTTPS. When I click play, the video just disappears and it leaves blank white space. While when not using a secure connection, everything works pleasantly well.

Is there any way to fix it, play videos, even when in HTTPS?

Browsers - Firefox & Chrome.

I don't have a problem playing youtube videos in HTTPS. Are you using Internet Explorer 9 by chance? – Dez May 1 '12 at 13:07
What browser(s) are you using? – Alex May 1 '12 at 14:01
I don't think it's browser dependent. Because I get the same result in both firefox & chrome. And no, I'm not using IE 9. – alvasrawuther May 2 '12 at 6:03
