Is it possible to embed a video into the storymap shortlist app? I have tried inserting the video URL in lieu or where I would have placed the image URL, but that doesn't work.

Thanks!

Hello,

The shortlist app is not currently set up to support video.  If you have some javascript skills, the source code could be modified to achieve embedding a video.  Alternatively, I would encourage you to take a look at two other storymap templates that do support video, map tour (Map Tour App | Story Maps‌) or the new map journal (Map Journal App | Story Maps‌).

You can embed a video in the Map Tour template, though, as I show in this video:

For the shortlist, you could insert a LINK to your video but not at the current time embed a video into it.
