When uploading a video I get "Download File" on front end

This is after selecting Embed as the option when inserting the video to a post.

Is this a recent change to Wordpress or shouldn't I be able to test the video on front and back end?

Greetings Jonaththan,

How are you adding the video? I recently used this on a project and had no issues with 4.4.X.

Are you using a youtube link or a video you uploaded into the admin? or something else?
