As I am linking one video, for some reason why i go to view it on an iPad, when I click on the video to play, it just loads and loads. I notice for some reason at the top of the video it says "1/2", and when I click on it, it is loaded as an "Untitled playlist", with two videos, which are the same, and I have to click on the 2nd video in the playlist to actually get it to play, although it is not in a playlist. This is for all the videos that I have linked to YouTube. It works fine on a pc, but not on a tablet, and causing confusion with users trying to play the linked video. If I click to open it in Youtube, it shows as one video, not in a playlist, and plays fine.

One last thing....if I am editing the site on my iPad or Android, when I preview the site after saving it, the video control works fine. It's only an issue after I have published the site and try viewing the content on the published site.

I'm sorry, you didn't answer my previous question. Is it all videos on the site? or specific pages only? Can you provide us with 2 or 3 page names?

It's weird...I've been testing and on some Android and IOS devices it plays fine, but on others you have to select that second video in that playlist to get it to play. One page is http://www.littleskinny.com/dhssf-v and another is
http://www.littleskinny.com/dhssf-v-tc-vw. I added a note with instructions on how to play the video if it does not play initially.
