Slider revolution youtube video - prior consent

  • Hi Freckles,

    As I am not familiar with the revolution slider plugin I could not give you exact steps which you should follow. 
    However, in order to enable prior consent to a youtube video you should add the data-cookieconsent-attribute to the video's iframe. I guess that you could modify the embedded video code by applying the cookiebot attribute and then add it tho the slider. For more information regarding this, you could check this link out: https://support.cookiebot.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003790854-Iframe-cookie-consent-with-YouTube-example

    Hi Spas,

    Thanks for your reaction. Yes, indeed. But there is no way to get to the iframe of the embedded video other than to change the generic scripts for rev sliders. Only this code would be overwritten each time the plugin is updated.

    Another way would be to add the youtube video in the slider as an iframe, only then I cannot get it to be shown in the same proportions as it is now:

    Would you be able to help me there?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Freckles,

    If you are able to add the youtube video in the slider as an iframe, then I guess that in this way you can modify the iframe in order to meet the prior consent requirements mentioned into the article above. 
    As you already said the only way is to change the script or to use an iframe. I think that using an iframe and then adding Cookiebot attributes to it is a good option for solving this issue.

    Hi Spas,

    The youtube video is part of a slider (Slider Revolution). The iFrame code is buried in the plugin code. I managed to change it, but it has to be changed again after the a plugin update.

    Now, one question. In case you use youtube no-cookie, prior consent is not really necessary any longer, correct. Since no cookies are left?

    Keen to have your feedback.

    Cheers.

  • Hi Freckles,

    In case that no cookies are beeing set, I think that everything should be fine. The idea id the prior consent is to inform visitors about the cookies that have been set and ask for visitor's consent regarding the cookies.

    Hi Spas,

    Thanks for your reply.

    But why does it continue to show up as not compliant (prior consent) in the report?

    Best regards,

  • Hi Freckles,

    If you have implemented prior consent and set everything right then it should not continue showing up as not compliant (prior consent) in the report. Could you please tell me what exactly the 'not compliant' message is so I can help you solve the problem. 
    Have you added the data-cookieconsent-attribute to the video's iframe because the issue could come from wrong implementation. Any information about the issue would be useful so I can understand the problem and help you solve it afterwards.
