As an addendum - I think we thought that as google couldn't ping the URL - it might not let the video play. 

If someone else could test this on an intranet version of toolkits that'd be handy.

Subject: [Xerte] Youtube Issues: XOT

Hey guys,

I emailed the list some time ago with an issue I was having with Youtube, having been off for a bit I'm coming back to this and still having issues.

I'm embedding a Youtube video using the new iframe embed code with the latest copy of Youtube.rlm as well as Youtube.swf checked out from the svn today.

The Youtube video simply does not play. Sadly the server I'm working on isn't externally publicised so I can't link you to the object but the video is set as Unlisted on Youtube but embedding works with that same video on a Moodle install that resides on the same server as XOT.

Using Fiddler it appears that the URL used in getvideo is malformed, exactly how, I don't know. The Embed contains only one ? Yet the URL being sent to Youtube contains 2 ?'s, thus breaking it. If I manually change the URL to be correctly formed and paste it into a browser, it works.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Manu thanks
