Embedded video bug Answered


I updated a video in my I'ble for the EL wire contest judging period. Now the video is gone and alas, I am not a finalist!

Sadness :-(

Whether or not the video had to do with the judging, it looks like embedded videos are not displaying from Vimeo. I tried a couple times with a couple videos and none will display in my published I'ble.

It seems to work for me, would you mind trying again one more time?

A couple of things to keep in mind, before you enter in the embed code that's given to you from the vimeo video, make sure you hit the embed code.  I attempted a few trials, which you're welcome to check out here.

While one of the embed codes worked without clicking Source, I'm not sure that's always going to work.  I'm using Firefox, if that helps.  Please let me know what you're using after you try again, thanks!

maybe it's a problem on my end. i'm using the latest update of firefox 3 on a mac. When i'm in the wysiwyg editor, i click "embed code" and paste the code. the "OK" button turns from green to yellow, and when I click again or hover over the button, my status bar in FF displays "javascript:void(0)". So I close the dialog box, move into Source editing, and paste the embed code there, at which point I get a blank black box where the video should be and no video on the front end. this isn't really a big deal for me in terms of this particular I'ble, but if it's a bug on your end and not mine I thought you'd like to know.

Okay, thanks! I'll take a look at it tomorrow on my Mac, and I'll pass one any info I find to those that might be able to fix it.
