    I can't get this plugin to work on my site -

    No video is showing up. I have the url as for the video as

    I even tried going back to the twenty twelve theme and disabled all other plugins and still no luck.

    I have 1.5.7 of the plugin. Video is set to public.
    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    It's working fine for me, I can see the video on the background...
    What browser and what platform are you using?

    I just updated the plugin today. It only works with the latest version of Opera and Google Chrome ver. 27.xx.xxx (the latest beta one), but not with IE10 (for Windows 7), or Mozilla Firefox (latest beta version). I updated the browsers today just in case. It wasn't working with Chrome until I tried on an "incognito window."

    Update: I just tried it with IE10's Private mode and it works, so maybe it's a plugin conflict.

    Also, because this does not work with the iPad or other smartphones or mobile devices, is there something I could add so that those mobile devices don't get to load the background video? Chrome on the iPad keeps showing the loading icon like it's still downloading something but nothing happens even after a while, sometimes.

    I see what the problem is, at least with Chrome. It's HTTPS Everywhere [https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere]. I disabled the browser extensions, and later noticed mb.YTplayer wasn't working when I had only that extension on. I also had its IE version on as well.
