After rereading this, I realized that you are probably talking about
the embedded Youtube videos. If that is the case, those indeed show a
white rectangle with no contents. This is because Youtube recently
changed their embedded player SWF and the new one unfortunately
doesn't work in Swfdec yet.

Actually it's not, because git always uses stricter compilation
options to detect more bugs and make the developers fix those asap.
Releases are a lot less strict, so 0.5.4 will work fine again.
