I use the YouTube widget to get videos to my website. Now it seems that I cannot get the YouTube miniature/start image to show.
Is it a change made in YouTube that is causing this problem? And since Muse is no longer updated, does that mean that the widget won't work anymore?
This works fine here without any restriction.
You may also try to use YouTube own embed code.
When I tried to change properties on my videos that does work, in the widget window, Muse tried to get the miniature but couldn't find it.
I get the message "Kan inte generera miniatyrbild": "Can't generate miniature" in Swedish. Which tells me that the issue must be within YouTube, since Muse don't speak Swedish
Now I found the problem. All my Social widgets are gone including the YouTube widget.
That's why the site works but not the editing.
I will try to get those widgets back somehow. (How is it possible for them to disappear?)
Yes, that works. I can embed it into Muse and the miniature is there. So the issue may still be in the widget. This is very strange.
Maybe I'll just embed my videos this way and skip the widget...
This is not strange. The latest version of Muse doesn’t install the social widgets any more.
Here you can download a .muse document including these widgets: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6y4jzv9u4lqly0c/Social_Widgets.muse?dl=1
Download the file and put the widgets into your own library.
Thanks a lot for the file, but sorry for not get it all right. Where do I put this file?
Just use the Muse widgets,. They are very comfortable to use and responsive "out of the box", what the YouTube code snippet isn't.
I opened the muse-file and opened up the Home-page, where I found all the widgets. But when I tried to drag them into the Library it didn't work. It just showed a circle with a backslash: "not allowed to do that"-sign. What am I doing wrong? With your expertise I think I'm near the solution, though 🙂
Sorry, my fault!
You can’t drag the widets into the library, but select it and click onto the "Add"-icon. Watch this screencast:
Hope, this helps! 🙂
"Maybe I'll just embed my videos this way and skip the widget..."
Yes, that's a very good plan.
Adobe removed the social widget for a reason. If they wanted you to use it, they would not have gone to so much trouble to remove it.
