    Posted: 28 Oct 2019 at 22:41
So, I found an issue that never occurred during all my testing: All of my YouTube videos are not being displayed.  I'm not getting an error message or a Flash warning button, they are just not there.

https://www.digitalcasemanagement.com/tutorial_demo_video.html

I have done two things since outputing this version from OE:

1.  I successfully installed a certificate and now my website is secure and has the HTTPS designation.

2.  I changed all of my .htm extensions to .html, because google search results were directing to .html and displaying a 404 page when clicked on. 

Could either of these changes have caused my YouTube embeds to be blocked?

Good eavening Hjiorst

I looked at your page and every video displays well now.

If you renamed tour pages from htm to html, you must understand that any changes made to your site using OE will overwrite it and you will have to change them back again.

Thank you for checking my website and providing the observations. 

As a matter of fact, they are still not showing on my browser.  

I will investigate this further....

First of all, this never occurred during the entire creation process.  It never occurred when I ran the server from the OE app and it opened in Firefox.  It never happened when I just opened the page from my desktop in Firefox.  And it never occurred any time I uploaded it to the "New Directory" folder on my server and viewed it from my own web domain server.

Now, it only occurs when loaded on my server when viewed on my computer via Firefox or IE.  Even if i use my phone's hotspot instead of my home ISP router.

I can see my videos on Chrome on my main computer, an HP Zbook G3.  I can see my videos in Firefox when I load the page from my desktop.  I can see them from my domain server on my cell phone, and my other computer (a newer model of the HP) on Firefox. My wife can see them on every device she has tested: mac laptop, her cell, an old iPad - in our home using the same internet.  She will check her office computer, but I suspect that she will be able to see them there.

Nobody here has reported not seeing them.  I'm now going to check friends and family, to see if they see them.

It would be very weird if suddenly - immediately after loading my pages to my public HTML server and setting up HTTPS - both Firefox and IE would decide to no longer display my embedded videos only on my main computer. 

But that is what seems to have happened.

If it were just one of these browsers, that would narrow this down so much. 

This is weird.  Still tracking it down.  Any ideas appreciated.

I could run your videos Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Brave  and Vivaldi.  Opera and IE failed.

Are your browsers up to date?

Solved it, and I think it can only be a problem with OE.

When creating the element for a YouTube embed, OE creates three different versions of the embed link to YouTube.  (I assume that this is for the different formats in a responsive website, but that's just my guess.)  Here is an example from my Tutorial Videos page:


As you can see, the first code contains the HTTPS, but the next two are written without the "S".  (Why would it do that??? YouTube is an HTTPS site!)

As I mentioned, I got a certificate and made my site HTTPS.

Firefox, when displaying a secure page, will not display an element of a page that is Mixed Content: that is, anything with an "HTTP" source.  I assume IE is the same way, as is Opera.

Unless you turn off security for the page, which I did and it all showed up fine.  I then went in and added an "S" to all the embeds in all the pages with them, and as you can see, they show up fine now. 

Or they should.  I only have Firefox, Chrome and IE.  But I'd bet its true.

You can get rid of OE element by using an iframe into a Code Block (Visual)

for example: 

<iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/yo6sF99mOD4?rel=0&autoplay=1&mute=1" width="700" height="350" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen">

Honestly, adding the "s" was pretty simple.  I figured it would screw up the responsiveness if I replaced the OE code with the standard embed code from YouTube.

Putting it into the Code Block element provides control over it size.  (Just in case you need it  Wink )
