• Hi there!

    Photonic is an awesome plugin that worked seamlessly in my site ever since. Except we noticed today that videos from Google Photos return a 403 forbidden error. Photos work fine, only videos give the “Invalid source” message on Edge while it silently breaks on Chrome.

    Lightbox: FancyBox 3
    Gallery: Google Photos Album

    Sample page: https://www.majlovesreg.one/love/three-fold-cord/

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    It looks like something broke at Google’s end late last week. I see this issue on their issue tracker reported by someone on Friday. For now I would say, exclude the videos.

    Note that Google’s support for videos is very sketchy. Their API doesn’t really offer a way to open videos in a lightbox. I had opened a feature request back in July with them, and via my own investigations I had found a workaround to make videos work by reverse-engineering Picasa’s API. But Google recommended against using the workaround as it was not documented via its guides.

    Hi @sayontan!

    Thank you for your quick reply and support. I see. I just checked today and the videos are playing alright again. 🙂 Thanks a ton, and all the best for your wonderful plugin!
