I am looking to embed a youtube video in Survey123. I want someone to be able to see the video and hit play after reading a question. Is there a way to embed a video in survey123 like this?

Unfortunately, videos cannot be displayed in surveys.

From documentation "Media other than images and audio cannot be displayed in your survey."

 

You might be able to insert a video HTML element in a Note question that would function while in a the web browser per this post: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-questions/embed-video-in-survey123/m-p/1056427/thread...

You could add a note with a hyperlink to your video, either in the web design tool or in connect add a note with something like <a href="https://www.youtube.com/">Help with submission</a>

I don't believe you can embed a video currently in survey123 but it's a great idea

Actually..., you can add a video to the web app, but not to the device app.

As noted in the other replies, using the 'note' question, you can add the <video> tag, in either the label or hint. Note that by excluding the width and height attributes of the video, it will automatically fit to the width of the survey.

 

Check it out here...

 

<video controls>

  Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

AbeCoughlin,  

I tried to check out your example of in your Survey that said "Check it out here..." from above and it say's it does not exist or is not accessible:

Was this survey deleted?  If not, can you share it publicly so that I can see the <video> tag example.  

Thanks, 

Greg

My apologies - cleanups are necessary..., but sometimes they go awry.

I've updated the link in the post but FYI the URL is https://arcg.is/1byD5W0.

I've also uploaded the spreadsheet.
