This is good to know but I just gave it a try on my MacBookPro Retina
and it failed.

I opened the youtube start page and there was an add at the top
(from Porsche :-)) which indeed played a video. Cool!

But when I then clicked on the link to close the add java crashed

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x000000014946489e, pid=4440, tid=87311
# JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_72-b05) (build 
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.72-b05 mixed mode 
bsd-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:
# C  [libjfxmedia_avf.dylib+0x789e] 

Obviously I'm having sticky fingers or so because I always catch all 
bugs which are lurking arround.
