HTTP vs. HTTPS

Sometimes embedded videos won't display correctly in Canvas so we have to prepare our students for how to deal with this issue.

This Google Slides presentation explains nicely why this happens and what to tell your students about it.

As a teacher, it's probably a good idea to instruct your students on how to deal with insecure content in their browser of choice, because this happens when you least expect it, even on a secure site such as Canvas or library databases. - Paraphrased from above presentation

More Options for Getting Around a Browser Blocking your Video

It's always a good idea to embed a video and also provide a link, just in case the video doesn't load properly.

See the example image below. Outlined in red is my embedded video and below it, I have included the link. This gives students the option of watching a larger version of the video and saving the link for future reference.
