I have four very short student-produced videos I want to display. I used the free video widget and added and custom URL for each video. They will all play in the preview, but when I published and created a schedule they will not load or will stop playing shortly after starting. I then decided to create a single presentation for each video and put them into a playlist and still none of the videos will play all the way through. HELP!!!!

Hi Holly,

A couple things could be a problem here.

  • These videos are pretty large, your media player may not be able to handle all four of them at once. I would suggest converting to .webm and seeing if this decreases the file size.
  • "Tasty Video 1" has an invalid Video URL, "Copy¬†of Mashed Potatoes .mp4" formatted this way, will not validate. You need to remove the spaces from the filename. Same problem with "Tasty Video 2" and "Chicken Fajitas.mp4".
