YouTube videos won't play on iOS devices

  • The theme is great! But we’ve got one big problem: On iOS devices embeded YouTube videos won’t play. You could see the thumbnail with the red play button but you couldn’t click on it to start the video. On all other devices it works. Does anyone could help? Thanks in advance

  • I am also having the same problem with YouTube Videos not playing on iOS devices. It may also be affecting the Google Ads on my page becoming unclickable on iOS.

    Any help with this problem is much appreciated.

    Hi there,

    I have checked that the video is not being shown on iOS devices.I think you are inserting EMBED codes MANUALLY into POSTS.So here is a solution for you, and it should help all who want to EMBED YOUTUBE videos on websites for iOS devices as well.
    Just CHANGE the attribute values according to your needs, and INSERT YOUTUBE VIDEO URL to make it appear on the iOS devices.

    Working EXAMPLE:

    <object width="640" height="360">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7dLU6fk9QY&autoplay=1"/>
    <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/>
    <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/>
    <embed width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7dLU6fk9QY&autoplay=1" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"/>
    </object>

    I hope this helps, but I couldn’t check it on iOS device.

    Thanks

    I have tried your suggestions, but I am still having the same problem!!!

    Now even the preview has disappeared from my home page of the video in our first post
