My embedded videos suddenly aren't shareable:
I explain it here:
Embedded video issue - YouTube @
This is a conundrum because using YouTube videos is an incredibly simple way to integrate multimedia into a course. Drop the URL and hit enter. However, when you get a message such as "Playback on Other Websites has Been Disabled by the Video Owner", that means the student will actually have to go to YouTube to view the content. Embedding has been disabled from the source. If you own the video then you can upload it right into the course, but that takes up space and it is simpler to stream from the YouTube servers.
Addressing another thing you mentioned, it can be quite cluttered and unprofessional when the grid of suggested videos pops onscreen after the video is finished (that grid can be like a box of chocolates...). You can modify this feature with a little work. On YouTube, click Share >> Embed >> SHOW MORE (right under the embed code) >> uncheck "Show suggested videos when the video finishes".
Then copy the embed code provided and paste it into your html editor in Canvas.
We have used the embed setting, and that still didn't work. I have just converted the video to an MP4 using ClipConverter.com and uploaded it. It's less than 50MB, so that is the solution I can go with right now. ABC must have changed the permission within the last year.
This happens frequently, Lori. I make extensive use of YouTube videos (musical selections, movie clips, snippets of theatrical performances) in my quizzes, and although I try to be diligent about checking them periodically, every so often the video owner disables sharing and I have to rely upon my students to tell me that they can no longer access it.
