Embedded video on mobile and tablet doesn't show after update to x pro 4.0.6


I updated my theme X pro to version 4.0.6 today, and ever since my videos won’t display on a tablet or mobile. There wasn’t a problem before I updated the theme. Can you please supply a solution to this problem? I’m not using a plugin to show the video, but just used an embed code directly in the page.

If I check the editor on my MacBook or iMac then it shows the video in the design editor for both the tablet and mobile viewers. But then on an actual mobile or tablet device the videos are not displayed. My customers often use these devices to see examples of my work, so is it of the upmost importance that these videos are visible to my (potential) clients. There are no problems on a Notebook or Desktop computer, on these platforms are all videos visable.

I hope you can come up with a speedy solution to this annoying problem.

Kind regards,

Hi Vincent,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Hi Vincent,

It seems that the Google Captcha from the Contact Form 7 integration is generating a JS error on the page. It is affecting the display of the embedded Youtube codes. Can we temporarily put your site in under construction mode and deactivate the plugin while we investigate further on this issue?

Kindly let us know how it goes.

That’s fine.

Hello Vincent,

You must have done something because when I check this morning, your issue has been resolved. The videos are showing on my browser already.

Best Regards.

On desktop yes…On mobile device know embeded videos…

on my laptop this is the image I see

Hi Vincent,

Unfortunately, the URL is showing the 503 and the Database error, can you please check with your hosting service provider and let us know when it ready to check.


There is no database error. I have updated Pro to Version: 4.0.8
My embedded video’s are still missing on mobile devices and on laptops.

When I edit the page in Pro the videos are visible… This is becoming a big problem for me, at this moment I am creating visual content to offer my clients online video workshops because we are all in lockdown here in the Netherlands. I don’t just have this website running pro but another as wel, which has exactly the same problem since the update.

This is obviously a problem that has been created by the update and nothing more. I hope to hear from you as soon as possible with a solution or a new update that solves this problem.

Kind Regards,

Hello Vincent,

Thanks for sharing your credentials. I checked your site it seems that you are using our “Classic Embedded video” element to render the video. I tested with V2 version "Video " element and it is working fine in both larger and smaller devices as well. I would suggest you use the updated version of “Video” element.
Please find the test page called “Themeco Test” that is in the draft mode in the secure note.


Hope it helps

Thanks…It’s working now!

Glad to hear that, Vincent.
