1218 – Why do YouTube embedded video links no longer work in ActivInspire?

Applicable to:

  • ActivInspire


YouTube has made a change to the protocols allowing third party applications and browsers to connect to, and embed, its content. ActivInspire can no longer play YouTube videos embedded in a flipchart, so you will see the following blank object when you insert YouTube embed code.
