Embed not working

I have a custom page where I embed a twitch stream. I’ve noticed that over the weekend the embed wouldn’t load at all. Streams on other sites I have setup work just fine but Twitch doesn’t. I just get a black window where the stream should be and nothing happens. I tried every browser, clearing and changing DNS, clearing browser cache, different networks and on other machines (Windows, OS X, Linux) and I get the same thing. Made sure flash was up to date.

I did a quick test and used the same embed code Twitch provides and I still get just a black window. The video won’t load.

Is there any issues going on with embedding Twitch streams?

If you are using the old flash embeds, are you changing the script access parameter? Apparently that breaks it:

All I’m using is:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" 

It’s what I’ve been using for a year and all of a sudden nothing will load. I get a black flash player and it doesn’t load Twitch’s player. The main Twitch site launches the player just fine. I can’t just embed anything outside of it.

As stated by @Fugiman in the thread I linked, you should probably just use the iframe API.
