Wistia video embed in Presenter 360

I want to embed a video hosted on Wistia in Presenter 360. When I use a Web Object with the video page URL, it shows the Wistia menu on the page, not just the video... plus the video is smaller for some reason I haven't figured out.

I want to be able to just embed the video using the embed code. Is there a way to do that in Presenter 360? I'd prefer to host on Wistia if possible so I can track views on that video.

If it can't be done, I'll just use the insert video feature, but we use Wistia for every other video in our company.

Thanks, Phil.  I tried copying in the Wistia embed code for both 'Inline Embed' and 'Popover Embed' (I assumed I'd want Inline but I tried both) and got a message saying Articulate can't use that embed code. Maybe it stopped working at the same time as YouTube videos in May 2015.

Hopefully there's a way to edit the embed code Wistia generates for it to work in Presenter. Strangely, the Wistia embed code works just fine in Rise.

I did not think that Articulate used anything special when embedding Wistia. For youtube they used the API which is why it broke.

Looking at Wistia site it looks like there embed codes are not the correct format as they use javascript  for the video embed, have you tried the fallback inline embed code?

Thanks... I did see that a few min ago after my first reply to you and it worked great. I'm now playing with changing my plan on having the Presenter player play/pause the video. It looks like that doesn't work for the embedded Wistia video, which I can understand. So, I'm removing those features on the demo slides and using the Wistia controls. Thanks for your help!
