Problem

When I click on a link to a page in Moodle, where there should be embedded video, I get a blank page instead of a video.

Solution

A new additional security measure was added in 2017 so if you haven't taught your course since then, this is an easy fix! Don't worry, you don't need to know HTML even though it seems like it from the directions. Just follow the steps:

When an embedded video in Moodle doesn't display, check the URL in the HTML code to make sure it begins with https instead of just http.

  1. Click on the <> HTML tool

2. You don't have to know HTML code, this is easy, just look for the URL and add that S-problem solved.

3. Here is a video overview if you would prefer to watch:
