Hi Jason

my quick anecdotal response is this: 

If you want reliablility cross browser only use either of the two misc >
youtube pages or the separate navigators > embed content page for embedding
YouTube clips i.e. don't just paste embed code from YouTube in any page like
the plain text page. Can you remove that plain text page from your example
and try again? If that doesn't fix it remove the embed content page too?


In my experience this is usually only a problem when using IE but doesn't
happen if you stick to the dedicated YouTube pages. I think it's because the
YouTube player is 'killed' properly when moving on from those pages but not
when embedded in the other page types. But that's guesswork rather than

Subject: [Xerte] Couple of glitches with embeded video and contents button




We have experienced a number of glitches in xerte2.0, these relate to:


1.     Embeded video content but especially YouTube videos, displays message
"failed to load, try again later" inside youtube video frame. This is
temperamental and works on some pcs. Also trying to proceed past embed video
pages has proved problematic with the next screen going 'black'.

2.     Contents button, sometimes returning to homepage instead of selected
page. This is usually the page before or after embedded video. At the moment
its failing to get past one of our LO embed video pages.


You might be able to replicate this through a LO of the above point. 




Are there any solutions to the above?
