            Once completed above action, you can also preview the link by using Test Link button,

            It will open in new browser.

Hi Michael,

I'm sorry to hear about the issue you've run into. YouTube videos that were added to Articulate content via Insert > Video > Video from Website aren't currently working.

You'll see this message where your videos should be:

YouTube is upgrading to a newer version, which is not supported by this device or app. To learn more and see where you can watch YouTube, visit

Google changed support for the YouTube API, which prevents videos added in this manner from playing in Articulate content. We've asked Google to reconsider their decision (Google Data Issue 7146).

In the meantime, we recommend adding YouTube videos as web objects instead. As an added benefit, YouTube web objects are supported in Flash, HTML5, and Articulate Mobile Player output.

Hope that helps and please let us know if you need anything else!
