    Youtube videos are perfect on the computer but don’t even appear on mobile. Tried EmbedYT and iframe as well as some CSS but no luck.

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

  • They disappear on phone view or tablet or both? Also, which browser are you using in mobile?

    Not sure if it’s the theme because there’s no video styling or coding that would make them disappear, but I will take a look.

    Quick update: I just viewed your site on my iphone and ipad (both in portrait and landscape view), but I was able to view your Youtube videos.

    Are they completely gone on your phone or tablet?

    I am using Android, Chrome browser. When I load the page the pictures load perfect but where the videos should be is just blank space.

    Unfortunately I don’t have an android phone. I’m wondering if there’s something in the OS for it that conflicts with the video. Again, this theme doesn’t have anything coded relating to videos.

    How are you adding the videos into your content, are you using a plugin?

    I just did a quick look in google and seems this happens to some people. For example:

    Really appreciate the help. I tried uploading it multiple ways, embed code, iframe, link, it doesn’t matter. I am going to try changing themes real quick and see if for whatever reason it is causing the issue.

    I was just about to suggest switch themes and see if the video shows. If they do show, I will have to figure out what and why in “Android” it would do that; although that is a complicated thing for me because again, I don’t have an android device.

    I look forward in finding out if the videos show in a different theme.

    It was a browser issue. Tried it on my iPad and my wife’s phone and it worked fine. No idea why it won’t work on mine but it doesn’t seem to be a theme issue.

    Thanks for the update. Hope it gets solved for your phone though.
