Using HTTPS Youtube videos on secure website.

    I am currently using a secure server for my site and would like to use a youtube video in my slider.
    The problem is that the HTTPS youtube URL is not displaying the video on the slider. It only displays when the url is changed to HTTP. This then poses a problem for my site. I need to be able to use the HTTPS.

    Is there anything I can do to solve this problem?

    Hello gwangsun,

    Try creating a new slide and then copy the embed code that youtube gives you on the video page and paste it into the "Slide Description" field of the slide to see what happens.

    Hi Elliot,

    I gave that a shot and we are almost there. It displayed the video, but it's not allowing you to click on the video to start it.

    I attached a picture, when you place the mouse curser over the video, it does not highlight or allow you to play the video.

    Removing the protocol and using a relative url beginning with // solves the problem for both http and https:
