This issue affects any instructor who is trying to embed a YouTube video into Canvas via the built-in Canvas search tool.


Instead of using the built-in YouTube search in Canvas, search for a video directly on YouTube.

Youtube videos can also be added via Kaltura MediaSpace as outlined in this document from Kaltura Knowledge Center.
