Youtube Web Object Misbehaving

Jan 10, 2013

Hi Everyone, 

When I use 'web object' to insert a youtube video and then publish to my LMS, it comes out looking like the attached image 1 for the default image. Then when I click back, it's gone entirely. Any idea why?

Hi Spencer,

Thanks for the file! I took a look, but I'm not running into the issue you mentioned (if I'm understanding it correctly).

I published the content using Articulate Online, you can take a look at it here. I watched the video, moved the seekbar around and moved to the last slide. After viewing the last slide, I went back to the video and it's still playing properly for me. 

Can you take a look at my published version and tell me if you see the same thing? If not, what browser are you using to view the content? If so, I'm thinking it may be an issue with either publish settings or the LMS support.

Thanks again, Spencer!

Hi Spenser!

No problem! It's Friday, it's forgivable Thanks for the file. I took a look and I saw exactly the same thing. Just curious, though, when a user is going back to view the video again is it absolutely necessary to have it resume? If not, setting the slide to reset to its initial state seems to fix the problem. 

Here's the published version.

Also attaching the modified file for your review.

Hi Spencer,

I'm not sure why it's showing like that before you click on the video.

Here's the unmodified version (your last upload).

Looks like the thumbnail does the same in both versions.

Ah! I think I found what's causing this.

Look a this published version, it looks much better. I changed the display options for the web object to load automatically. It doesn't start the video automatically, but seems to display better.

Let me know if that works for you
