    I have a listing with youtube embedded.
    I have a slider with caroussel in my homepage, placed by the home page editor.
    The video doesn’t play.
    When I disable the home page editor, the slider with carousel appears (the standard) on the home page and the embedded youtube plays.
    The uploaded video (in media) plays in both situations.

    BTW When I click and when they play, they don’t play on the home page, but on another page.
    -how can I let play in de slider on the homepage?
    -hwo cn I prevent them from playing automatically, s they do now on the other pat?

    How are you embedding the videos?

    Hi Mark,
    Zarko told me: the problem was that there was no Youtube_link field in the database.
    To let the video play (embedded video from Youtube) in the slider, there should be a field ‘Youtube_link’.
    You can assign that manually, but you can also use a custom field and enter the key ‘Youtube_link’.
    I changed that and it is working, video’s do play now.
