There are two potential reasons your content may not be working:
When using the Insert Stuff framework to add a YouTube video or other embedded media in a Content frame, the certain internet browsers block the content because it is unsecure without informing the user that there is actually an invisible block around where the media should be. This makes it appear as if the insert failed even though the browser is actually blocking the unsecure content.
To resolve this issue, the URL that is linked from within the Content frames must use https:// and not an http:// URL. It may be necessary to reconsider linking to content If the destination site doesn't have an https://. If it is necessary, ensure that your students know that they need to enable the ability to view unsecure content.
To find out if your course is sandboxed, navigate to Course Admin > Course Offering Information. An indication if your course is sandboxed is available on that page.
Note: The configuration variables d2l.Security.ContentSandboxDefault and d2l.Security.ContentApplySandbox need to be on for your role.
