 > I think youtube is broken at the high setting, for the same "it now uses
 svg" reason?
 > It sounds like longterm we either tell people that high security is a
 setting that these sites chose to be broken on... or we reduce security
 features from the high security setting every time a major site starts
 using something that it had disabled... or we go to the major sites and
 tell them to stop using scary web functionality... any other options? :)

 Or we use these type of tricks: for example if you have a YouTube url like
 `https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWII85UlzKw` then replace the
 `www.youtube.com/watch?v=` part with `hooktube.com/embed/` resulting in
 `https://hooktube.com/embed/JWII85UlzKw` which '''definitely works with
 High security setting.'''
