    Hey all,

    Not sure what’s going on but a client of mine is using the Replete theme with mostly great results.

    However once I switched the theme over all embedded youtube videos disappeared and I couldn’t figure out why.

    I tried everything I could find on the internet and when I gave up I decided to just hit “inspect element” and the videos popped out of nowhere in Chrome. I tried the same in Firefox and got the same result.

    After taking a look in IE the videos seem to show up fine all over the site. Which leads me to believe this is browser specific and I couldn’t find any other answers on the forum about this.. which I also found odd.

    Here is a link with a listing with some videos in question: http://savageclassical.com/product/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) /

    Please let me know.



    Hi TheImpactSD!

    That’s weird. Please try this on your custom.css or Quick CSS:

    .woocommerce-tabs iframe {
    width: 658px !important;
    display: block !important;



    Thanks for the replay Ismael, BUT it did not work.

    I tried both the custom.css and Quick CSS and there was no change.



    I just checked your website on Chrome and Firefox and it does work fine on my end on Win7. See screenshot here http://i.imgur.com/0ryGq7D.jpg
    Can you check once again and confirm that it is working on your end as well?



    Hi Yigit,

    It is still not working on our end, I have tried on 4 different machines. 2 windows 7 machines with firefox, chrome, and IE, and 2 OS X boxes, testing Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

    I would also prefer that the videos don’t open in a lightbox.



    I’m not sure why it is not showing. Can you please try this?

    iframe {
    display: initial !important;

    Remove browser cache then reload the page. Let’s wait for Dude and Kriesi’s response.




    How did you embed the videos? Did you use the standard oembed feature: http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds ?



    I have tried both the standard oEmbed feature embedding with iframe.

    Originally in the past (before switching to replete) I only used the html iframe embed.



    Please try to delete following code located on wp-content/themes/replete/js/avia.js


    I think the iframe size calculation doesn’t work properly on your website and returns 0px for the width/height value.



    Sadly that did not work either, I made sure to purge my CDN and empty all caches after trying all of these suggestions.



    I marked the thread for Kriesi – maybe he knows why the videos are not working on your website. Please deactivate all plugins and check if the video start to work afterwards – if yes it’s probably a plugin conflict.



    Hey guys,

    I just checked yesterday and waited until today to post, all videos seem to be magically working now?

    No idea what goes on here but as long as it’s working I guess?

    I made no changes.



    Glad its working for you now. Maybe there was an IP level block on the video provider or something like that happening. Its uncommon but I have had it happen one time to me and have seen it a handful of times over the years with others.
