Web Object Youtube video not displaying

Jul 22, 2012

I have inserted a Web Object with a Youtube video.  When I preview/publish the presentation the video does not play but a message appears:  This contains content from SME.  It is restricted from playback on certain sites. Watch on Youtube (underlined).  When clicked it takes you to the video on youtube.

How can I get this video to display in slide withing the presentation?  Any ideas?

Yes I did.  The message only occurs with certain youtube videos.  Others display fine.  I thought it might be something new, a sort of copyright to do with the music.  As I gave you the youtube video link, can you please try to recreate the problem on your end?  That would be great!

Hi Marianne, 

When I checked your link the first time, I must've closed the window before even hitting play (Mondays) to see that it was in fact restricted. More and more, YouTube content owners are restricting their videos so they can't be used on third-party platforms, and I'm getting the same screen as you when testing it on my end. Sorry for the initial confusion, but unfortunately the video won't work in Presenter.
