Now it works, now it doesn't #version=3

I've started to get more emails from comments on my YouTube channel about my How To... Embed a YouTube video into a PowerPoint 2013 Presentation. Suddenly the embed code I describe using is no longer working. Here's an example of embed code (from my own video):


Previously, you had to delete the twos instances of "version=3" highlighted about.  Then this stopped working.  Then thanks to on-line forums, I discovered that changing the "3" to a "2" worked. Today this no longer works. I don't see any change in the embed code that might cause this not to work. Microsoft can only display what works, so that leaves Adobe and Shockwave as likely culprits. Why do they do this?

If anyone has a fix for this, please let me know.
