Learn@UW/D2L - Media Objects Inserted into Document Using HTML Editor Don't Display within HTML Editor

Media objects inserted into a document using the 'Insert Stuff' ( Insert Stuff ) icon in the HTML Editor don't display within the HTML editor.

You see a yellow box where the embedded media object should appear that contains an icon indicating which application should open the object (such as QuickTime).

For example:

Video within HTML editor does not display

However, the media object is displayed and can be played when you view the document within a course tool (outside of the HTML editor).

For example:

Video within HTML editor displays normally

The media object also displays and can be played in the Preview window brought up when you select the "Preview" icon (resembling a page and a magnifying glass) on the bottom tool bar of the HTML editor.
