Discussing New Technologies and Opportunities


in this example, the entire embed code (below) was pasted in the media player.

Django stripped it all out to this link, which is http and does not work (hence nothing displayed above). 


If we add an https it works in webprod but not live, (see next column for example of this.)


original code (note: I took out all the opening brackets for display purposes because Django kept stripping out the full code .)

div style="position: relative; display: block; max-width: 100%;">div style="padding-top: 56.25%;">iframe src="//players.brightcove.net/4405352786001/DE0oHmbht_default/index.html?videoId=6294648596001" allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen style="position: absolute; top: 0px; right: 0px; bottom: 0px; left: 0px; width: 100%; height: 100%;">/iframe>/div>/div>

above is an example of using Django's stripped out link but changing http to https.  It does not display when published.
