I think I’m having the same problem. I’m trying to place a YouTube video into a page using Lectora 12. It plays fine in a browser but doesn’t appear at all on an iPad. Does anyone have any tricks for this? I’m still new with Lectora and I don’t see an option that says Insert > External HTML Object. Thank you
If you want an alternative to Flash, I find that using a combination of MediaElement.js and Freemake Video Converter plays everything on every device. It’s not too difficult to set up. If anyone is interested and wants a tutorial let me know.
@klaatu i’d be keen to see how you set that up. Having major issues with streaming video just now and trying various things to get to the bottom of it. It may well be internal settings (of the organisation) that prevent video from playing but would be keen to try your solution in any case. Embedded and streamed video plays fine in Chrome but not in IE11.
Thanks for any pointers that you can provide.

Time permitting, I’ll try to put something together this weekend. It is very interesting and perhaps promising that Jennifer mentioned in another post that Lectora is now actually using the very same JS media library as I suggested you try. Hopefully we can access it’s API. If so we can add some awesome features.
Not sure if this will help you or not, as the videos that I had were not streamed (they were mp4’s in my media folder)…but I had a problem with the flash player trumping html 5 on all PC’s. This was a problem, as Flash was not loaded on the tester’s PC. I found this post…..and yes, it worked!
