Youtube Links

My site has 2 Youtube Video links on the gallery tab. They were working before on a previous hosting site but I move to Infinity Free because its a better interface. I built the site using Serif X7 and its in development at the moment but on the site software I see the link just under the ‘Under Construction’ Icon. Just wondered if I’m missing something or doing something wrong.

Your code has a problem. you set it as transparent. Please use this code
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Hi, weird !! I haven’t done anything different. I use Serif to View the site in Internet Explorer and Firefox and Both show the Youtube link box under the Site Under Construction image. Thats the code that was saved on my PC and copied to the Infinty hosts. Where has the transparancy bit come from ?

Strange! Did this code work?

Yes on the old hosting, plus when I do the site view using different browsers. Thats why I was confused with the transparancy setting you suggested.

use HTTPS for youtube links

and then delete the browser cache just in case


Hi, just edited the code for both pages and its now working. I will have to experiment though. I just insert a media link and point it to the Youtube video URL using Serif and I just checked the code and it showed it as HTTPS: so not sure how it reverted back to HTTP. I will do a few tests to see if its a one off or a glitch I need to cater for. Thanks for your help.


always use the browser and its dev tools
and of course let it show you everything
and not just a critical error


and then while you have dev tools open (console tab)
you make a refresh or even CTRL + F5
read the output in the console and find every problem


No one uses IE anymore, its trash and has been replaced with Microsoft Edge. So spare yourself, and don’t test with IE.
