    Hi, can you carry out the following.

    Deactivate all of your other plugins except this one. Then check to see if the YouTube videos are displayed? If they are then you know you have a plugin conflict. If they are not displayed then can you test one of WordPress default themes like Twenty Fifteen or Sixteen?

    Thank you

    It’s because your site is served over HTTPS and this plugin is requesting the Youtube video unencrypted (via HTTP). I am trying to figure out how to fix this myself.

    OK so here’s the deal – some themes which come with prettyPhoto (in my case, Megatron theme) are using an older version which load youtube vids over http.

    The solution is to fix prettyPhoto at the theme level, either with a direct hack or with a child theme.

    Another way might be to deregister prettyPhoto in functions.php of the child theme early, so that this plugin can register its own later, but then you could have issues if the theme counts on the earlier version of prettyPhoto for styling reasons.

    I’m just going with the hack for now.



    What was the hack for this?
