Error occurs during validation for embedded YouTube Video

Mar 29, 2013

A little confused.  I've been having difficulties with YouTube videos embedded in Storyline slides.  I did get them working using the embed object (recommended on this board) instead of linking them but I have one working in the articulate mobile player and one that isn't - no difference in these videos - one working in the browser and one not -- is this something I'm doing wrong or is this buggy?  Is there a best practice?  I'm not sure what to make of it.  Thanks

HI Sharon,

There are two methods for inserting YouTube videos into Storyline. If you use the Insert > Video > Video from Website option, YouTube videos won't work in HTML5 or the Articulate Mobile Player app for iPad, because they're wrapped in a Flash control.

If you'll be delivering your Storyline courses via HTML5 or the Articulate Mobile Player, add YouTube videos via Insert > Web Object.

Let me know if you still have trouble with the videos after trying the suggestions above.
