Brightcove troubleshooting

There will be some users who will not be able to see videos hosted by Brightcove. This is because Brightcove's JavaScript embed code does not natively support HTTPS links to their videos. Most modern browsers will not render a video that is linked as HTTP on a site that uses SSL (HTTPS).
