Steps to reproduce:

1) Enable tracking protection in Firefox Nightly (privacy.trackingprotection.enabled).
2) Open an Air Mozilla page with an embedded vid.ly video, for example https://air.mozilla.org/tracking-protection-for-firefox/

Expected results: Video is embedded in the page.
Actual results: No video appears in the page.

Tracking protection is blocking a Google Analytics script, and it looks like the script at https://vid.ly/6i0o7t/embed contains code to wait until Google Analytics is loaded before setting up the player.  It defines a function `isGALoaded` which it calls in a setTimeout loop.

The same problem also occurs with other privacy/security add-ons that block GA.
Summary: air.mozilla.org vid.ly videos fail to load with tracking protection enabled → air.mozilla.org vid.ly videos fail to load with tracking protection enabled (g-a breakage)
Looks like this is fixed now. The video displays and plays when opening this page in a tracking protected window.
