my videos aren't playing on my site?? software update issue?

  • hi all…!

    So basically, my website http://www.bradyjamesnyc.com , if you click the videos tab, i just updated the site with 9 new videos down bottom….the only thing is, they’re not playing…..my only guess is that its because the software needs to be updateded? the code is exactly the same for the top 9 videos which work fine…..really befuddling to me.

    any troubleshooting anybody can offer would be much appreciated! -B

    (PS…also, in regards to updating the software, i read that u should back up your site before doing this….if anybody has a quick and easy solution to back up my site and update it to the newest software, that would be much appreciated as well! )

  • It’s likely because you’re linking to videos on Vimeo with the httpS protocol, from a http site (the videos that DO work, are http versions).

    For example, for the first video that doesn’t play, change this:
    <a href="https://vimeo.com/56533229?width=640&height=480" rel="wp-video-lightbox" title=""><img src="http://bradyjamesnyc.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/mr-phenom-cover-NEW-.jpg" class="shadow"></a>

    Into this:
    <a href="http://vimeo.com/56533229?width=640&height=480" rel="wp-video-lightbox" title=""><img src="http://bradyjamesnyc.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/mr-phenom-cover-NEW-.jpg" class="shadow"></a>

    so, just delete that one “s” after HTTP in the code right?

    I just deleted the “S” from those new videos and they’re still not playing :/

    please help!!! -B

    oh wait….! yes it did work when i copy and pasted the code you gave me….for the other videos, what changes to i have to make to the code that is there presently?
