After I add the URL to the Subtitle a Video, and click begin, I just get a black screen with a loading icon and the video never loads. What can I do to fix this...
Do you mean creating an Amara subtitling page for a video from the "Subtitle Video" tab, i.e. http://www.amara.org/en/videos/create/?
If yes, does it happen with every URL you try to add in the subtitling box or just with a specific one?If just with a specific URL, could you please indicate it here?
Thank you for your question, Palmi. YouTube videos load normally, because YouTube (and Vimeo) URLs for a video page can be read by the Amara software. In other cases, you must input the URL of the video file (.mp4 for instance), not of the page where the video is embedded, as in the example you give.
And the problem is that the visir.is player where the actual video file is embedded is designed to prevent people from getting at the URL of the video file.
Sorry about that.
