Well it seems we have now got rid of the youTube icon for embeding videos but now it just shows a blank box. This is worse than the youTube icon showing. Why can we not just have the video thumbnail show up ?

Here is a demo image, the first two video are exactly the same, the first one showing a video by using the link which shows up fine and the second shows the same same video but added by embed and we get just a blank box.

  • Hi John,

    Thanks for the update. I have submitted necessary changes to the report made before.

    Best regards,

    Ning Team

  • This stuff ispretty basic for a video feature.Dosnt it get tested before release?

  • This is still ugly and the videos do not come out in activity 
    source greetings and cheers thanks ...
     

    • I agree manual I wish they would fix this asap and yes embeded videos do not get add to the activity feed which again is really annoying. Come on Ning let's get this fixed up so it does not get left in the dust like the events listing did without a lot of posting to get it fixed.

      • Thanks John for everything you do, your good English,
        say, to ning, understand,
        better, your English John communicates better,
        thanks greetings
    • The first two, with url youtube, 
      and the one that comes out ugly,
      with embedded youtube code

      • Hi Manuel,

        We do apologise for the inconveniences.

        As the report has been already created we have also added the name of your network to it. So when the issue will be resolved we will send the email to you.

        Regards,

        Ning Team.

  • When is this going to be fixed? Been a while now as it's not just the image not displaying ( by the way it's because the background image url is empty ) it's also that any embed type videos do not get displayed in the activity feed.

    It's been 20 days since this was posted and the video feature was released on March 27th, it's now April 25th !

  • Well I do believe this has been fixed now. Just added a video via an embed from youtube and the image show up and the video now shows in the activity feed.

    • Hi John,

      Yes you are right the issue with embedded videos has been fixed, however, it's only working for newly added videos, unfortunately, if you have already embedded several videos it will be necessary to do this once again and remove the old ones as the preview will appear only after the fix has been released.

      But as you know there is no need to search through youtube or any platform where the video is located as you can get the embed code just under the video by clicking the appropriate button.

      Apologies for any inconveniences.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.
