Embedded YouTube video (WebObject) works as HTML5 but is blank until hovered when published as Flash

Nov 22, 2018

Example of behaviour uploaded to review site


Current version is uploaded as Flash and remains white until you hover over the video area (behaves the same way with URL as HTTP or HTTPS)

Version 1 was uploaded as HTML5 and displays properly

Unfortunately we need to publish as Flash due to other elements working poorly under HTML5 with our browser setup.

I've read through similar posts regarding white boxes, but haven't seen anything specifically about Flash/HTML5 behaving differently or hovering the area revealing the video. Once the video is playing, the audio continues regardless of whether the video is hovered/visible.

Story file attached - any suggestions are greatly appreciated at this point (or simply confirmation that the behaviour is the same outside of our environment - using IE11)
