Embedding an interactive Google Map

Hello community.  I would like to embed an interactive Google map into my Storyline project and am running into some issues.  What I am looking for is having a portion of the screen be an interactive Google map, while some text and other objects are presented explaining information about the location.

For example, lets say the location is 244 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10001.  I can get the URL for the entire map which is https://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&q=244+5th+Avenue,+New+York,+NY+10001&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x89c259a615595747:0xafa42844a5f4ef8f,244+5th+Ave,+New+York,+NY+10001,+USA&gl=ca&ei=Xgz3UK-sDKm90AHoxoGICg&ved=0CC4Q8gEwAA

I dont want all the extra frames, just a small portion of the map. 

The next thing I tried was clicking the link button towards the top left corner which brings up this;

This is exactly what I am looking for but the embed code is not working for me as it cannot be directly entered into Storyline. 

So my question is, how can I do this?  Do I need to execute some Javascript?  If so can anyone assist with that?

Thank you in advance.

Nancy thank you so much for posting that link, it gave me the solution.  Simply using the Insert -> Video -> Video from Website worked!  I copied the Google Map embed code and pasted it into the following field;

I think Storyline needs to change the name of the this command to "Embed Web Object" as it doesn't matter if it is a movie or not. 

Thanks again!
