We are aware of and currently working on a resolution for viewing embedded videos in Blackboard.
These videos are identified by a purple "Show Media" button. YouTube and other videos are unaffected.
Until we resolve this issue, we have found the current version of Chrome browser plays all videos correctly.
If you experience any problems viewing blackboard videos in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Edge, or other browsers, try using Chrome v.56 or higher until this issue is resolved.
Thank you for your patience.
