Trap when teaching web development using iframe and Youtube

Capture   Little trap for the unwary. Many schools teach web development without deploying on an external web server such as Apache. At least for Junior classes. So when teaching about embedding YouTube videos using iframe you show students how to get the required code from the “share” function of YouTube (above). Only problem is that in many cases this will fail because the protocol http: has not been included. Works fine on an external server… not when run using Ctrl/O however.
