I installed Drupal 7 2.0 RC-2 with the current dev of media module. I use the CKEditor 4.1 current version and enabled all settings in Drupal but if i stream a youtube video it shows me only the image and the youtube iframe. What make i wrong?

In the attachment you see the screenshot of my settings.

I'm getting the same. Once embedded, the embed code appears to point to the JPG poster frame but there's no reference to the movie that it's supposed to play.

Try Media: YouTube 7.x-2.x-dev - it appears to solve the issue.

  • Drupal core - 7.19
  • Media - 7.x-1.3
  • Media: YouTube - 7.x-2.x-dev

It also solved an update error I had with a another D7 installation.

I am finding the same problem as those above for inline images although integration with Media Gallery works as it should.

I am getting this also does anyone know of a fix? I have verified that I have both the YouTube Video and YouTube Preview Image checked in the manage display with the Video being above the Preview as instructed within the readme.

+1 I tried all. I have current the same issue only with the ckeditor module.

The same issue i have the vimeo media plugin.

I see that the ckeditor 4 remove some css classes or other html tags. If i put in a youtube iframe via manual source code and go back normal view and save, the iframe is away.

Same problem with media-youtube rc3. The preview image generates, but the embed video not appears on content view page.
I will test it with an older ckeditor, that it has similar problem with embed videos.
