embed youtube video doesn't work on the iPad

Apr 02, 2013


I created a project with Storyline (http://db.tt/9Sxg0RvJ) and embed my video from youtube on slide 5. In my browser on my PC everything is fine.
But when I try to watch the same project on my iPad in the Arcticulate Mobile Player I can't see the video. The progress bar in the player shows me that something is going on but the slide is empty :-(
If I insert the video directly everything is fine, but to save webspace I prefer to embed the video.

Any ideas how to solve this? Thanks.

Here's what I'd do...

1. Open up Notepad.

2. Copy the YouTube embed code.

3. Paste Embed code into Notepad. 

4. Save Notepad file as index.html and place inside a folder.

5. In Storyline, insert web object.  Click folder icon and point to the folder you created.

This will pull in the index.html file that contains the code.  

I've found this to work on the iPad.


Here's a sample
