Hi EB community,
I want to put some how to videos in my experience builder. I've saved them on Google Drive. Settings are so anyone with the link can view. When I use the embed widget, and paste the URL, I get this error.
When I use the embed code, the video appears in the frame, but when I press play, nothing happens.
When I link the URL (to open in another tab or to become the entire tab, it works. I would like the video to just be a window though, so the user doesn't leave the website.
I am going to try hosting on Dropbox. I wonder if it is that Google Drive only wants its videos to be watched within Google Drive. Has anyone experience this before?
Ok, you have to remember what you're trying to do here which is have a controllable video embedded within your content. A link to Google Drive is just that, a link - it'll be the same with Dropbox, there's no embedded "player".
Since you're going to make the content viewable by everyone, I suggest creating a simple YouTube channel and upload your video there, unlisted. You can then either paste in the URL or Embed the iframe code into the embed widget.
Hi @JonathanMcDougall . Thanks for this. This was going to be my next work around, however I am going to wait and see what other replies I get. I know it's worked for other people on Dropbox. I've seen it work. I would like to use Google Drive then I can keep everything in one place. Also regarding Youtube, some of the data in the video is sensitive and wouldn't want someone to come across it accidently. I haven't read Youtube's T&Cs, but would rather play it safe than sorry.
How's that table/relates video for me from my other post going? 🙂
