MySpace members who use the YouTube service should be able to place videos on their profiles again.

What a difference a day makes. All the kerfuffle over MySpace blocking YouTube has been resolved.

YouTube posted an update to its blog that discussed what happened:

(W)e have been able to get in contact with Tom from MySpace. Turns out this was a simple misunderstanding, and MySpace has re-enabled all YouTube embeds. Everything should now be back in working order.

YouTube has also taken down the previous post that detailed the problem and listed user complaints in trying to contact MySpace about it.

We also heard from MySpace user Corey Ward about a workaround that worked for him:

A video from youtube.com doesn’t have an extension…but creating a PHP page on your site with a .swf extension and doing a header redirect (header(‘Location: youtubevideopath’);) works perfect.
