Youtube videoes doesn't show in Google Chrome

May 25, 2016


I am having some trouble with embedding YouTube videos in my course. When I use Microsoft Edge it works perfectly as both a Web Object and a Video from Website, but in Google Chrome neither works. Does anyone know what is wrong? I am using Articulate Storyline 1.

Hope somebody can help me figure out what's wrong!

Hi Hanne!

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.

If you view published Storyline content on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.
To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published. Please review this article for details.
