Video embedding and Firefox

post #1 of 9

I've noticed an error when using the video embed tool and Firefox


Windows 7, FF 3.6,10


Unknown Object





Here is the same video link using Internet Explorer (IE8)

Kyle has your answer, Firefox users:


In Firefox 3.6.9, the Firefox developers made an unannounced and significant change to the way that the browser handles certain types of objects that created issues for many rich text editors across the web, including the one that we use at Huddler.  You can read more about the bug here (it's pretty in-depth technical stuff though): https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=596300


The end result is that users who are using Firefox 3.6.9 and 3.6.10 (the two latest versions) are unable to upload videos (both YouTube and Vimeo) and file attachments on the Huddler platform.  The Firefox developers have acknowledged the problem and have incorporated a fix for it in the next Firefox release (3.6.11), which is currently scheduled to be released on October 14th.  Until the new version of Firefox is released, users who are having trouble inserting videos and attachments should use an alternative browser such as Chrome or Safari.

Thanks, FF won't play nice with my website inpector and spyware decection software either so I only use it on one machine, the machine I use least for leisure.

I think all of this should clear up when FF issues an update scheduled two weeks from now.  As I understand it, the problem is with the browser, not this site.  BTW I am affected by this as well since FF is my default browser.

I have had a problem embedding video in Mac/Safari, which is an issue that also is being addressed. A short term work around is to put the video URL in the text box (which comes up when you click on the film icon). Works great!

testing 1 2 - Can you see my video now? Above was pasting the utube video url per instructions (i.e. pasting the video url= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-zbFbLhXLc into the space below)



and generates source stuff like this...

<img align="" alt="Unknown Object" class="youtube" src="/lib/ckeditor/images/spacer.gif?t=A8LE4JO" style="border: 1px solid black; background: transparent url(/lib/ckeditor/plugins/HuddlerVideo/sources/youtube_logo.png) no-repeat scroll center center; width: 425px; height: 355px; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;" />


Which does not work, but if you go into source mode ans change the img tag to

<img _huddler_custom="youtube-7-zbFbLhXLc" height="355" width="425" /></p>


it will work
