Hi Jamie,

It seems that you've run into the cross domain iframe security issue that you can see if you look in the console on Chrome

[blocked] The page at https://xerte.lncd.lincoln.ac.uk/play.php?template_id=287 ran insecure content from http://www.youtube.com/embed/pyDPJENZOs0?wmode=opaque.

You are serving the code from an https server but using http://www.youtube...

You might have to change the code in the youtube page model to accommodate that by changing the http: to https:

It's something that we should eventually take care of but has come up with other pages too and over VPN...

I've just rebuilt it so I could test it and it works fine in Chrome here on the 2.1 files: you aren't using the youtube page type though, you're using the embed content page...

Thanks for your replies. We've now determined that the problem seems to be with displaying the Xerte object in Chrome. The video loads up fine in IE, Firefox and Safari but not Chrome.

One of the examples can be seen here (3rd page):


The text on the page loads up but not the video for some reason. The same happens with all of our other Xerte objects that have YouTube clips embedded...
