Support » Plugin: YouTube Channel » html5 iframe stopped working

  • Resolved klanxner


    The html5 iframe display was working fine for weeks. Then it stopped working. No video is displayed. No new plug-ins or other significant changes to the site. Other options such as Flash and thumbnail work fine. Thanks.

  • Please try with version – added back old iframe functionality, new async moved as second iframe option.

    Hope that will solve many problems until I resolve issue with loading youtube iframe_api.

    Yes! Works now. Thanks very much. Not sure why but using just iframe adds about 250px of white space below the video — although I could probably fix that with some CSS. But the iframe async option works and displays perfectly.

    Thanks @klanxner, that was typo in conditions. Fixed in 🙂


    I updated to version yesterday and now our video wall won’t load at all … can you give me some ideas how to fix please … – thanks

    can you provide debug log (watch video from plugin description page here on

    try async or iframe w/o async, what browser you use to check front page?


    I’ve just updated to version 2.2.0 and now our video wall won’t load at all … can you give me some ideas how to fix please …

    FYI – I have a so so knowledge of your tech language so be gentle with me … I’m pretty clever but do get lost when tech gurus start talking their own lingo 😉 … thanks

    I see you switched to thumbnails, but in theme’s style.css you do tiny tweak to float thumbnails left and give them bottom/right margins, but did not set width/height so nothing show there. So, try that first.

    For IFRAME, now we have 2 options:

    • HTML5 (iframe)
    • HTML5 (iframe) Async

    Try each of them and one should work for you.

    Btw, for that video wall on your site, I suggest thumbnails and video in lightbox instead embedded players, because boxes are too small for full viewer experience 🙂


    Hello Again

    Well I made the change you suggested re: the thumbnails & HTML5 and all worked for 24 hours or so then its just stopped again with no updates being done etc … can you help as to what it is this time please???




    Ignore that last message … all fixed now

    Apologies …
