Embedding BrightCove Video using their new format HTML player.

Mar 16, 2015

I've seen a few people threads from folks who use Brightcove to store and stream their video like my client does.

However we started seeing issues with the old style players that were using something in an old flash setting that our security was saying was bad.

So we got told to use their new player which is totally HTML.

However I now can't embed them into SL2 using either of the embed code options they generate for the player.

Has anyone else used the new player embedded into Storyline yet?

If so can we chat about the embed code you used that worked.

Hi Ashley.

Yes I did.

But it didn't help :(

I've got a support ticket open on this but here is the problem.

The article says ...

Brightcove offers several embed options. Be sure to choose the Player URL (iframe) embed code for your Storyline course.

That is a bit of a contradiction.


When publishing in Brightcove you get 3 options as shown in the attached image.

My choice is the player URL OR the iFrame

I’ve tried all 3 and they all give me the same message.

 I ‘ve also tried adding a width and height value to the iframe code as here

<iframe src="//players.brightcove.net/1148423579001/190859de-e84c-495f-b94f-d5525d526a3e_default/index.html?videoId=4093305660001" allowfullscreen="" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen=""> width="962" height="720"</iframe>

But that gives me the same error message.

What I need is advice on how to make the embed code work in Storyline the same as it does on everything else.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks All

Hi Alan,

It looks like one of your > signs was in the wrong location - this code should work: 

<iframe src="http://players.brightcove.net/1148423579001/190859de-e84c-495f-b94f-d5525d526a3e_default/index.html?videoId=4093305660001" allowfullscreen="" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" width="962" height="720"></iframe>

I used that and didn't see an error message - and it plays ok loaded up here.
