Embedded youtube video will not play even after being published

Hi,

I have been trying to get this to work for a while, I have embedded a youtube video into my course and when I try to play it it doesn't me too and I get this message:

(I am aware they do not play in preview mode, this is after I have publised the course and uploaded it onto our server)

Does this mean that the owner of the video has blocked people from being able to embed it into anything?

It does allow me to follow the link on there to open it in Youtube itself but as many users in my organisation are not allowed access to Youtube they will not be able to follow this link.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Many thanks in advance,

Rebecca

Hi Rebecca,

I'm sure that Michael will help you get to the bottom of the issue here, but I just want to jump in and mention something that stood out to me.

"[...] but as many users in my organisation are not allowed access to Youtube they will not be able to follow this link." 

If they are not allowed to access YouTube, then I suspect that YouTube videos will not work for them via a web object either.

Hi all, Thanks for your replies!

I took my work laptop home this weekend to try it out there and I got the same message...

Not sure what is going on! I obviously have no restrictions on my home internet to stop Youtube videos playing.
