 For some reason, I never received the replies to my question, and it
wasn't in spam either.

Thank you Paul Hibbert, and Peter Bogdanoff for your suggestions!

It might be the codec that YouTube is using. See:

One way that does work with YouTube is to use a browser widget instead of the
player control, then set the URL to the “embed” link provided by YouTube, but
first, remove all of the iFrame tags and parameters, so in this case the URL
would be, https://www.youtube.com/embed/K033kBr3C6c
