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="http://www.kaltura.com/p/520801/sp/52080100/embedIframeJs/uiconf_id/5476351/partner_id/520801"></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="http://purl.org/dc/terms/" xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/searchmonkey/media/" rel="media:video" resource="http://www.kaltura.com/index.php/kwidget/wid/_520801/uiconf_id/5476351/entry_id/abcdgoldfish" data="http://www.kaltura.com/index.php/kwidget/wid/_520801/uiconf_id/5476351/entry_id/abcdgoldfish"><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="http://www.kaltura.com/index.php/kwidget/wid/_520801/uiconf_id/5476351/entry_id/abcdgoldfish" /><a href="http://corp.kaltura.com">video platform</a> <a href="http://corp.kaltura.com/technology/video_management">video management</a> <a href="http://corp.kaltura.com/solutions/overview">video solutions</a><a href="http://corp.kaltura.com/technology/video_player">video player</a> <a rel="media:thumbnail" href="http://cdnbakmi.kaltura.com/p/520801/sp/52080100/thumbnail/entry_id/abcdgoldfish/version/100002/width/120/height/90/bgcolor/000000/type/2" ></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>
