Hi Redmine Team,

I am currently in the process of creating a page of videos on the page. I am having a problem because for some reason although the page I created should show three different videos, it shows the same video three times (although when creating the page I included the link to different videos). It seems as though somehow the page is "stuck" on the first video. In fact, I made another distinct page and that page is too showing the same video although I entered in the URL from the new video. I have played with how I am embedding this into the page to no avail. I am stumped on how this could be happening and would be grateful for any insight. I have the Jetpack plugin installed and that is what I believe embeds the videos for me when I enter in, for example


in the text of the post.

Here is a link to the page that is showing the same video three times:

Here is the HTML on that page:

Thanks for any help on this!

This is definitely an odd problem.

You might be right that it's related to Jetpack. Before I start doing extensive debugging, could I ask you to try using WP's native YouTube embedding instead? Instead of the [youtube] shortcode, simply try pasting the URL on its own line in the editor.

To further add to what Boone wrote, you might also want to try the YouTube URL without the playlist querystring:

Hi Marilynn -- Whenever you have a chance, please cycle back and let us know whether either of these solutions worked. thanks!

Hi Boone, Raymond, & Matt,

I tried both suggestions to fix the page, and when I did both at the same time (deleting the youtube shortcode + taking off the playlist querystring) and it worked. Mysterious to me why that would work, but it did!

Thanks for your help.
