[resolved] Videos have gone (4 posts)

    I have lost the three videos embedded in my localhost dev site. They have been working happily for weeks but they no longer show up on the page - although I think the HTML is still there. The space they used to occupy is still there but it's empty.

    Since I can't be certain precisely when this happened, it's difficult to know how to troubleshoot. I *think* the most likely agent provocateur was an unexpected message from above telling me that WordPress needed to rebuild its database before I could proceed. It's not a plugin conflict as the videos stay resolutely lost even with all plugins disabled - but it might conceivably be linked to the latest WP or Customizr updates.

    The videos weren't all embedded in the same way. Was anything wrong with my code?

    <div class="video-container"><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/fS3BR1ZyRQA" height="315" width="560" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe></div>
    ------------
    <img class="mceItemMedia mceItemIframe" src="http://localhost:8888/sitename/wp-includes/js/tinymce/themes/advanced/img/trans.gif" width="560" height="315" data-mce-json="{'video':{},'params':{'src':'//www.youtube.com/embed/fS3BR1ZyRQA','allowfullscreen':'','frameborder':'0'},'hspace':null,'vspace':null,'align':null,'bgcolor':null}">
    <dl class="wp-caption aligncenter" id="" style="width: 600px;"><dt class="wp-caption-dt">
    <div class="youtube" style="width: 590; height: 330; text-align: center;"><a name="nhsvideo"></a><object width="590" height="330" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/fS3BR1ZyRQA?autoplay=0&rel=0" /><embed width="590" height="330" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/fS3BR1ZyRQA?autoplay=0&rel=0" wmode="transparent" /></object></div>
    </dt><dd class="wp-caption-dd">"

    Thanks for any help on this. I've been reading some old stuff about WP stripping out video embed code with the workaround being simply to include a one-line video URL instead -- but I had hoped this would no longer be a live bug. And the workaround doesn't allow for custom sizing of the video viewer, which is sub-optimal.

    Videos have magically reappeared with todays WP 3.9 update!

    I note that some 3.9 introduces some database change and assume that the forced database rebuild a couple of days ago was what caused my problem …although no-one else seems to have suffered.

    [Just loving the new widget preview feature!]

    [My only complaint about that is that Custom CSS should be at the top of the tree so that the dropdown code pane can be dragged to full screen depth if required. However, the titles are rather big and @nikeo could save some space by reducing the title font size (if indeed that choice is his). I presume it wasn't possible to collapse the various widgets under one dropdown, which is a pity, but I would still rather have them there than not.]
