Authoring Tool Preview

I am new to Adapt, and I'm building my first course using the authoring tool.  When I preview a page, the blocks that I add that include things like YouTube videos, or responsive iFrames that link out to assets on the web do not show in preview mode.  Is this normal, or am I experiencing a local problem?

The most obvious thing I think of is that you're getting cross-domain-security issues i.e. if you're running the AT from http but linking out to URLs using https.

Have a look in the browser console to see if you've got any errors.

Always use protocol-less URLs i.e. "//community.adaptlearning.org" instead of "http://community.adaptlearning.org"
