[Pro] iFrame code

A bit of a conundrum!

On this page, 6Towns Radio Archive Jan-June 2015 sound files are presented in iFames with the embedded code from Mixcloud. All seems to have worked well, but the most recent one won’t play.
26 Feb doesn’t work, but all others do and all the code is similar. And if I put fresh code into the other iFrames they cease to work as well.
I don’t know if it is a coincidence, but I have just upgraded to Yosemite. Page was done in FW 6.

Any advice would be gratefully received!

Check the URL. You are getting an error from MixCloud saying they cannot find the content (404).

This is the code that is pasted into the iFrame:

https://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?embed_type=widget_standard&amp%3Bembed_uuid=9a3d2447-eb5d-48b2-955b-15d3220559d2&amp%3Bfeed=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mixcloud.com%2Fslaggbrothers%2Fthe-slagg-brothers-6-towns-show-26215%2F&amp%3Bhide_cover=1

The code has the same beginning and end that I have always used.

What happens if you follow that URL in a browser? Do you see an error message?

So is something wrong with the code?

This is the full code (I normally just use from the first ‘www’ to ‘cover=1’
Strangely, if you click on ‘Slagg Brothers’ towards the end of the code it gets the correct link. Do I need to copy a different part of the code?

Is your own site (the one that holds the iframe) using https (secure) protocol, or regular http? If you follow this link, what do you see:

http://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?embed_type=widget_standard&embed_uuid=175a634d-fb1d-4297-b10c-bbb019dacda1&feed=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mixcloud.com%2Fslaggbrothers%2Fthe-slagg-brothers-6-towns-show-5315%2F&hide_cover=1&replace=0

When I follow that, I get redirected to https:// and I suspect that may be part of the problem. If you refer to secure content in the context of an insecure page, you may get an error. I’m not sure if an iframe can solve that basic problem or not.

I tried making a test page here, but I am getting a missing file error from the JavaScript:

Failed to load resource:
  https://www.mixcloud.com/media/sourcemaps/player_widget_js.1a025715fbd421ad42a36c1aba24a3c6.js.map
the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

That could be because I am not hosting this at the correct URL for your license key.

I am out of ideas here, though.

It is https

strange but

https://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?embed_type=widget_standard&embed_uuid=8f318d6e-18ba-4fc0-a078-6c1a257ac814&feed=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mixcloud.com%2Fslaggbrothers%2Fthe-slagg-brothers-6-towns-show-26215%2F&hide_cover=1&replace=0

works in the browser, but not in the iframe

The iFrame has been ok for over 90 previous uploads - not sure why it suddenly stopped! Many thanks for your time.

In an update to this, and from looking at previous embeds of code that I had done, I think I may have discovered the problem!

This was the normal code that I would embed

https://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?embed_type=widget_standard&embed_uuid=ce79fc27-839a-425e-a58d-31a1e4cba1fe&feed=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mixcloud.com%2Fslaggbrothers%2Fthe-slagg-brothers-6-towns-show-12315%2F&hide_cover=1

From looking at pious example I seen that the code between the ‘?’ and ‘feed’ was not used before, once I deleted this - hey presto! it works!

https://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?feed=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mixcloud.com%2Fslaggbrothers%2Fthe-slagg-brothers-6-towns-show-12315%2F&hide_cover=1

Could someone tell me why this might be - why is that extra code in the middle making the iFrame fail?
