We could do with bottoming this out: I also experience those issues from time to time, but not consistently on our own setup. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes the movies play after a long delay, other times I give up.

I have wondered if it is a youtube thing? A youtube thing serving particular domains? I’ve not got to the bottom of it, but I did take the youtube component and run some tests on it outside of toolkits, and it worked (at that moment in time), so I know our code is working properly.

Any other relevant experiences? Does anyone *never* experience these issues? That would be good to know as well.

Subject: [Xerte] Problem embedding youtube video


I am working on a project for my schoolclasses. I downloaded the xampp and xertetoolkits and that works fine. Exporting to scorm works okay and I can read, view and listen to the texts in our Teletop/it'sLearning programm

However, I can't get a working embedding code for a youtube movie

I CAN embed the code.
I CAN see a youtube screen in the project
IN the screen I can see a nice picture with the well known arrow
However, when I hit the play button the screen stays blank
And.....when I than click on the YOUTUBE word in the screen, the video opens and plays...

This is the embedding code I get from the youtube website. However, I can't get it the working in Xertetoolkits.
