Friday Video: Say Again? Scots in the Elevator

Loretta reports:

Last month, after several weeks of increasing suspense, Scotland made its historic decision to continue as a part of the U.K.  Many people who followed the media coverage spoke of not understanding what Scottish speakers were saying.

Me, too, sometimes, as I’ve mentioned before.

This funny bit about Scottish accents came courtesy my husband.

Certainly many of us in the U.S. have had similar Baffling Accent Experiences when speaking to people from other parts of the U.S.  Or even—as has happened to me—from my own hometown.  For more on one U.S. version of a sometimes-bewildering accent, please see my previous Friday video here

Readers who receive our blog via email might see a rectangle, square, or nothing where the video ought to be.  To watch the video, please click on the title to this post.

The Friday videos are not appearing on my iPad at all. It is just an empty spot. I don't know why, but they were not showing up prior to the OS 8 update nor after.
Are they Flash? (No "get Flash" icon is showing)

Is there another link I could use to watch them?

SumMom, here's the direct link to YouTube
Not being technically savvy, I'm not sure what the problem is, but if I figure it out, I'll let you know.

Well, here's a forum about what sounds like the same problem, although it's pre iOS8. Since I don't use Apple, I'm really clueless.
