Issue

When publishing a dashboard containing a video link embedded in a web object, the video may display correctly on Tableau Server but be blank on Tableau Public.

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Public

Resolution

Ensure that the video embed link is a secure (HTTPS) URL rather than an unsecured (HTTP) connection.

Cause

A Tableau Public dashboard is a secure (HTTPS) URL whenever a user is logged in, whereas a Tableau Server dashboard begins with HTTP. Issues can arise whenever non-secure content is contained within secure content.
