One of my favorite APODs was "wringing a wet towel in orbit" from 2013 April 24 (https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130424.html) but the video no longer appears on that page. Can that be fixed?

YouTube is all https now, that is the only thing preventing the embedded video from loading. https, with the s of secure, as in: encrypted connection between server and browser. One character in the webpage source could fix that:
src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/o8TssbmY-GM?rel=0" should be
src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/o8TssbmY-GM?rel=0"

I’m sure the same applies to several other APODs, as they’re clearly not batch processed for this transition.

Click to play embedded YouTube video.
