Apologies: a typo - the address is www.kropinski.net

I've tried replacing the default video playlist with various different plugins and none of them will embed or play in the new WordPress 5.5

Welcome and thanks for the report @jacekk . Are you seeing any JavaScript errors in your browser console?

If so, you'll need to get in touch with your theme developer about jQuery changes. There's further information here: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2020/06/29/updating-jquery-version-shipped-with-wordpress/

Thank you so much John! I installed the Test jQuery Updates plugin and voila: site working as expected. A newbie at this but learning fast from my mistakes and with guidance from experts such as yourself. Greatly appreciated.

Glad you got it fixed!

Take a look at the jQuery section on https://wordpress.org/support/topic/read-this-first-wordpress-5-5-master-list/#post-13238244 too, because jQuery will get updated in a future version of WordPress and more functionality could break. It's not ideal to have things break but sometimes it's unavoidable.
