Hi All,

SPS faculty are redesigning their Faculty Community site:

They use the tool Ensemble video to make and host videos and would like to pull their videos into their Commons site via the Ensemble Video Responsive Plugin.

Videos are pulled by adding their ensemble URL to the Ensemble Video setting area (screenshot)

Whenever they add their own URL on this page and attempt to update, the url is not saved; it is stripped out and replaced with "demo", as seen in screenshot.

They have reached out to the Ensemble plugin team to check if this issue might be a problem with the plugin but I also told the SPS team that I would check with our dev team. The SPS team said that"If you need more information or need to connect the Commons developers with our Ensemble plugin vendor, let me know. The Ensemble folks would be open to this."

Can we check on possible reasons this url may not be updating or if the commons system is stripping the url upon saving?

The SPS Ensemble URL is

It looks like this redirects to their single sign on page and maybe this is the cause of the issue?

I found a bug in the plugin, which I've reported to the author at For now, I've got a hotfix in place that makes it possible to save the options.
