Web Object not working in Google Drive

Dec 10, 2013

Hello everyone,

I created a storyline and added a web object (YouTube video) to one of the slides. I uploaded the entire storyline project to web and extracted it to my Google Drive. The folder in Google Drive is set to public, I changed story.html to index.html and the project plays from my drive (reference: http://community.articulate.com/blogs/taylor/archive/2013/08/26/how-to-share-your-e-learning-course-for-free-with-google-drive.aspx). However, the web object will not play. I already made sure that my YouTube video is set to public, do, I'm not sure how to get that video to play. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance,


Example: Normal 0 false false false oNotPromoteQF /> EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

Just ran across this older post, having the same issue with googledrive, but also dropbox and amazon S3, all of them trigger a browser warning of unsafe script and require the user to click allow script, I would have assumed this was purely browser side security if it wasn't for the fact that if I zip and upload to tempshare it doesn't ask just automatically loads. Anyone got any ideas?

Also I tried to share the files in skydrive (now onedrive) but couldn't get that to work at all.
