    Hi Robert

    Are you embedding a self-hosted video or one from YouTube or Vimeo?

    I posted a similar question on the WordPress Forum here:

    It seems that when the video widget is saved it strips the “HTTPS” to “HTTP” – is there a fix for this?

    I know I’ve had a look at this issue in the past, as far as I remember it was something WordPress related. The video embed widget uses the WordPress oEmbed class, but I’m sure this was fixed.

    The one sure fire way to fix this though is to just paste the embed iframe into a standard text widget.

    Thanks for the quick reply. If I simply paste the HTTPS video URL into a standard WordPress page (not using Site Origin Page Builder plugin) then the video loads as expected automatically. I love the Page Builder plugin but pasting an iframe code into a page widget goes against the “simplicity” statement about Site Origins Page Builder and the Organic Theme – nudge, nudge.

    Yes, there are “work arounds” but for the “average user” this is not an ideal solution. I’ll look into the WordPress oEmbed class to see if anything has been posted about that.

    FYI, WPBakery’s JS Composer does NOT have an issue with HTTPS video. Another nudge. ;-)
