A couple of years ago this post raises the question of an Enterprise (Portal) Cascade Storymap not being able to add a YouTube video.

Owen Evans‌ responded with:  'We are looking at supporting this in 10.6.1 (or possibly a 10.6 patch). When this is implemented an administrator will need to add your own YouTube API key to a configuration file in the Cascade app on your portal.'

I'm still getting the same problem today and we are at ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1: has this been implemented yet and if so, where is the documentation describing the procedure?

Hello Joe -- This has not been implemented in ArcGIS Enterprise. The current workflow to utilize videos in a Cascade story map is to host the video file on your own server or use Vimeo. You can also consider using a Journal or Series story map instead since those support YouTube directly.

There seems to be another undocumented feature:  When I try to add an <iframe> specifying the height and width to an Immersive page, the <iframe> text gets scrambled once I hit the check mark.  However, it works if I just link to it as an image.  Sigh....

before check:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.####.###/gisapps/images/ArcGISDescribe.mp4" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>


after check:

<iframe src="https://www.####.###/gisapps/images/ArcGISDescribe.mp4" height="315"></iframe>‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

Will this ever be implemented? Or is this something that just won't happen ever as the focus shifts to the new storymaps roll out?

I am trying to use one of ESRI's own videos, is it available on Vimeo?
