My YouTube Videos won't play on mobile devices but other people's videos will.

    Hello. My website can be found at and I can’t seem to get my YouTube videos to play on my mobile devices (ipad and iPhone).

    I can however play other people’s YouTube videos from their WordPress websites. So this is why I don’t know what is wrong. The videos work fine on my computer but when I test the site on my ipad and iPhone the video will just have the spinning buffering symbol and never play the video.

    Please help.

    I’ve also tried it on different mobile devices and none off them can load the videos either. But they can run other people’s videos even though they have a WordPress website as well.
