Embed widget code or html code in storyline?

I'm trying to embed some html code into Storyline and I'm wondering at this point if it's even a possibility. I've tried embedding it as a video, but the code is rejected because it's not a video file. For this instance I can skip it, but I would like to know if embedding html code into Storyline is possible without too much of a technical work around.

Welcome to E-Learning Heroes, Amanda!

While I haven't personally tried to do this myself, it looks like you may be able to do something similar by modifying the code and using the video method you tried before:

embed HTML code in storyline slide

If that still doesn't work for you, try hopping into that discussion or you might be able to insert the content/source as a web object.

I hope that helps!

Would anyone be able to help me embed a video from the following link: http://www.pbs.org/now/shows/442/ into a Storyline slide? I used the site's embed code in S2 by going to "insert Video from Website": <embed src="http://www.pbs.org/now/media_player/flvplayer1.swf" width="512" height="308" bgcolor="000000" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" flashvars="file=http://www-tc.pbs.org/now/video/NOW-442-stream.mp4&plugins=embed-1&image=http://www-tc.pbs.org/now/shows/442/images/video-512.jpg"></embed>  When I published it though, I was not able to click on the video and get it to work (the screen was blank where this object was placed). So, I tried inserting a web object, but then you get the whole website, not the actual video (the embed code won't work here).

Help please!
