However, there’s a change; “As of Jan’11, some videos that YouTube and our content partners would like to monetize willn’t be playable using ActionScript 2 chromeless player because it doesn’t have ability to show ads.

As a developer, you can handle this event and play an alternate video, or display an explanatory message to your users,” explained Google.
