I used pageviewer webpart. When I try clicking on the video link, I get this error: This content can’t be shown in a frame There is supposed to be some content here, but the publisher doesn’t allow it to be displayed in a frame. This is to help protect the security of any information you might enter into this site.

How do I fix this?

The code I have is this:

You need to Permit iframes from any external domain into pages on this site as the following:

  • Go to Site Collection Settings > Site Collection Administration > HTML Field Security
  • Check Permit contributors to insert iframes from any external domain into pages on this site.

enter image description here

  • Go back to your page and check if the Page URL has been rendered inside the Page Viewer web part or not!

Note: If the issue still persists that means the publisher of this content does not allow it to be displayed in a frame.

  • I don't see site collection admin. I don't have the right privileges for it. Is there any other way to fix it ? – user10 Nov 6 '18 at 13:25

The owner of the "framed" content has added JavaScript to detect it is being loaded in a frame. You may need to add a link that when clicked opens their content in a new window or tab. They probably have some code like this in their page:

if (window.self !== window.top) {   error messages here   }
  • I have added the code to the questions. Do you think it is because of the code I have attached? – user10 Nov 6 '18 at 13:24

Create a pop up window to see the video :) in that way it does not follow the resctrictions from sharepoint. It use basic html javascript basis :)

  • I have a video slider, would the pop up work for that too – user10 Nov 6 '18 at 15:33
