Youtube Embed Frozen – Elementor + Astra Theme

I’m building a personal cv/resume site and it’s my first time using WP. I’m using the Elementor theme Astra and everything went pretty smoothly until I tried to embed a youtube video.

On my live site, the Youtube embed is just frozen as if it is an image. I can’t click on play or interact with the video. When I was building the site, I just inserted the youtube block inside a container and entered the youtube link when prompted.

I know it’s hard to troubleshoot without looking at my setting but is there something obvious that might be wrong?
