Embedded youtube video problem
Hi, I am currently on the track with HTML, and I am on the topic of embedded elements.
I was just following along with the video when Nick said that to go to a Youtube video, and copy the embedded code provided by youtube into my sublime editor.
However, when I run the webpage on chrome, nothing appears.
Above is my CodeCast
The protocol-less url won't work when run locally.
For both the object and embed element you want to add the
http: in front of the url.
<object width="420" height="315"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/_OBlgSz8sSM?hl=en_US&version=3"></param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/_OBlgSz8sSM?hl=en_US&version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed> </object>
It would work without the
http: if you had it uploaded to a web host.
