  • Understanding the Known Issues & Limitations of the HTML iFrame/Embed App

    Keep in mind that by adding external HTML code you are adding products and code that we have not tested or created in Wix, therefore our support team cannot answer any questions concerning the HTML iFrame/Embed App.

    We recommend testing your code externally. You can do this using sites such as the following:
    w3schools.com
    jsfiddle.net

    1. Videos added through the HTML App will not auto-stop when you move through the pages of your site. You will need to manually stop your video from playing before navigating to the next page.

    2. Media players added through the HTML iFrame/Embed will not auto-stop when you move through the pages of your site. You will need to manually stop your media player from playing before navigating to the next page. Also refrain from using the "auto-play" feature with media elements.

    3. Please note that the character limit for the HTML code that you can add is 8,192 characters.
