Trying to Embed Video Code in Storyline - Not Working

Hi.

I'm trying to embed a YouTube video code in the Video feature in Storyline 2.  The code is:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/gpCIvZK_UYc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

When I try to embed it, I get the attached error message.

Any advice would be very welcome.

Thank you!

Hi Tony!

Firstly I'm super new here and to this software but I think I can help you out.

Youtube no longer supports this method of embedding so the correct way to do it now would be to:

  1. Find the video ID you want to embed.  In your case it is "gpCIvZK_UYc"
  2. Add it onto the end of "https://www.youtube.com/embed/" (making https://www.youtube.com/embed/gpCIvZK_UYc)
  3. Then on the destination slide:    Insert > Web Object.
    1. In the dialogue box you will need to put the URL we made earlier "https://www.youtube.com/embed/gpCIvZK_UYc"
    2. Change any options you may need.

This should be all!

Hope it Helps!

Hi Tony!

Looks like Jim is taking care of you here and I just wanted to pop in and share our documentation as well.

You may see this error message in any of the following scenarios:

"A video cannot be inserted from this embed code. Verify that the embed code is correct and then try again."

*  You're trying to add a YouTube video to your course.

*  Your embed code doesn't have width and height values.

*  Your embed code is malformed.
