Hi folks,

This forum is supercool! Hopefully there is a solution to this issue.

Following link shows the intro video working. https://www.sweetview.de/output-1/index.html Uploaded as ggpkg (extracted, separate folder upload with ftp client) is not working as this links shows. https://sweetview.de/boulder-island/ (Password: frosch).

Any suggestions? Thanks so much in advance. All the best. Phil

Hi Phil,
I see the issue, good find by the way.
When displaying in WordPress the path becomes broken, so we would use $(r).
When using the video element there is no way to do this.
So...
Add the video to assets and remove from the video path in the video element.
Then add the action to the video element:

Config Loaded, Set Value, $(r)assets/intro_video.mp4, _self
I'll add this to the bug tracker.
Regards,
Hopki

For those following, my instructions were to add the video to assets, the file path would be $(r)assets/video.mp4.
The reason why this did not work was the video was put in a different subfolder, once the file path was corrected all worked as should.
