How to embed video from "facebook" into Storyline

Hi,

I am having trouble embedding a video directly from facebook as web objects into Storyline. I have gotten instructions to embed video from youtube and it works. But I can't find any instructions for embedding video from facebook. Does anyone know how to do this? This is the video I am trying to embed.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Alice,

I don't believe it's possible to embed just the video from Facebook. Facebook doesn't handle videos the same way as YouTube, and I think this is simply because that's not Facebook's focus.

If you look at that page, you can see that there's an option to embed the post itself, but even if you do that, you'll show all of the content on that page (comments, etc.).

It may be best to just insert the entire page as a web object, or contact the page owner to see if you can either record the video using Storyline, or if you can have access to the original video to use in your project.

Let us know how it turns out!

Best,

Christine

As Christine mentioned, the embed code provided by your link only allows to include the complete post (video, plus the info below the video). See a quick test here. I fiddled around with the embed code for a while to see if editing the code would change the appearance but I didn't see a way to only shows the video.
