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.
You can embed a video in the Map Tour template, though, as I show in this video:
Esri Storymaps for Education: Embedding Video - YouTube
For the shortlist, you could insert a LINK to your video but not at the current time embed a video into it.
