Video Won't Play on a Wikispaces Page

How to troubleshoot Video on Demand media that won't play on a Wikispaces page

This article applies to: Video on Demand

User Experience

After embedding the Video on Demand code on a page in Wikispaces, you find that the video doesn't embed properly.

How to Solve this Problem

The work-around is to manually edit the embed code to remove three elements:

  • xmlns:dc
  • xmlns:media
  • rel=”media:video” resource

Each is followed by a URL, which must also be removed.

These parameters can usually be found in the first "<object>" element, after the height and width values, and before the "data" element.

For example, in the code below, you would remove everything that appears in red:

<script type="text/javascript"  src=""></script> <script>mw.setConfig("Kaltura.UseAppleAdaptive", false);</script><object id="kaltura_player_255426168" name="kaltura_player_255426168" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowNetworking="all" allowScriptAccess="always" height="285" width="400" xmlns:dc="" xmlns:media="" rel="media:video" resource="" data=""><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowNetworking" value="all" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><param name="flashVars" value="streamerType=rtmp&&{FLAVOR}" /><param name="movie" value="" /><a href="">video platform</a> <a href="">video management</a> <a href="">video solutions</a><a href="">video player</a> <a rel="media:thumbnail" href="" ></a> <span property="dc:description" content=""></span> <span property="media:title" content="Robotics Video For Testing"></span> <span property="media:width" content="400"></span> <span property="media:height" content="285"> </span><span property="media:type" content="application/x-shockwave-flash"></span> <span property="media:duration" content="182"></span></object>
