Embed video link

Hi All,

I was wondering if it was possible to embed a video link (say youtube) in an embedded external content container? Or if that’s not possible, if there is any other way to have a playable video from a screen.


Hi Mike,

This is possible using the Embedded External Content Control.

However, most of the standard video providers I tried (YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter) all didn’t work because they want to read/write cookies on the document, which we don’t currently allow for security reasons. (I think they use these cookies to make sure users aren’t abusing the Embed feature or putting it on sites they don’t approve).

I was able to get it to work by hosting the video myself. I made a simple web page with a video using Github Pages, and set the source like so:

You can see my simple setup here: elliotfiske.github.io/test-embed.html at master · elliotfiske/elliotfiske.github.io · GitHub

And the final published app is here: Attempt video embed
