Youtube embed works in Chrome but not in Firefox

Recommended Posts

nfp1900

I used the mediabox and youtube embed code from the channel I set-up. It plays directly from the site  in Chrome and Safari but the mouse-over the play button is unresponsive in Firefox and it doesn't start. And I guess on the PC as well.

 

Is the best way to use the PL shortcode as a rule? I saw only one other posting  that referred to this, not sure if it's my user error?

 

  1. [pl_video type="youtube" id="Add video id here, see image above"]

HI,

 

Looks like an issue with the MediaBox, as the video isn't displaying correctly for me, but does when I use the Post/Page content editor. I will report this as a potential bug.

I would recommend using the standard embed code.

I was using the standard embed code... I was asking the question because it wasn't working with that and thought the shortcode would be more effective.

I have just this moment added the following code to a MediaBox and the video displays perfectly.

 

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/N-xHcvug3WI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

What code was you using, where were you adding it (which section and option) and what was happening when you view the site after adding the code?

I used this code in a mediabox in a 4 grid column:

 

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/GyWWwqvrE4w?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

It doesn't play in Firefox but does in some other browsers. If you navigate to the page oraclecancertrust.org.gridhosted.co.uk I added the same film and embed code into a textbox. The formatting is by default a bit different but it does now work.

So you encounter an issue in MediaBox but not in the TextBox section ?

I posted a textbox under the mediabox with the same content. The youtube play icon is unresponsive in the media box but does work in the text box. 

 

I am seeing this on Firefox on the Mac but the client reported it to me who are PC based.

OK, I have reported the issue as there is certainly something not right. In the meantime, use the TextBox if that is working for you.

 

Thanks for bring this to our attention.

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.
