Youtube vids not playing

After posting a link to one of my vids I decided to try and understand whay it wont play for some people on phones etc .

I found a good ( I think) explanation ;

Why are some YouTube videos not available on mobile devices? | Pocketnow

All to do with adverts/ music and making money or not as some devices don't show the adverts that generate the revenue that pay for the site and make the money .......

Hope this helps - its not down to the person posting the vid - more the attitude of those who make the music that goes on them.

Yeah its a pain as you don't know which songs have the rights applied until you edit the music to the video and then wait 2 hours while it uploads.

Some of my videos work on all devices and some don't the only safe way to ensure the videos work on all devices is to not attach copyright music.

The other option is you could create your own you still play the pan pipes?
