Construct - Homepage Slider Spinning, Java doesn't help

    I'm using a brand new WordPress install at, and I tried to make a video slider, which has since seemed to crash the slider completely. I was trying to do a stage right or left slider, and I attempted at first to do it with the video hosted on my WordPress server, and then with a YouTube URL, just to test.

    I also inserted the javascript "<script type = "text/javascript" src = ""></script>" into the additional headers section (and also tried the custom javascript section), while changing the slider to nivo slider, and nothing worked. It's still giving me the spinning icon.

    The hosted video is 42MB, and at first I thought it had to download fully. But I also tried the YouTube streaming link, and that didn't work either.

    Any advice?

    Hello beier100,

    You need to paste the youtube URL into the slide Image/Video URL setting. We do not have any options for self hosted video currently.

    I am still doing that (hosted on YouTube), but what I'm saying is that the entire slider does not work. It seemed that when I first attempted to link the video via URL, the entire slider option crashed. Even deleting slides and recreating new ones (normal photo ones) won't work. The thing just spins and spins, as if perpetually loading.

    Make sure your using the latest version of Construct, 1.8, and make sure there is at least one image slide in the slider as well.

    Also be sure to deactivate all plugins while testing.
