Hi Julie,

By that do you mean to ask whether or not ads will be shown when a video with ads is embedded in Rise, If so, I wanted to let you know that I just tried embedding a YouTube video with an ad, and the ad did not play in Rise. I would suggest giving it a try on your end and seeing what happens.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hello Allison, 

Yes that is what I am asking.  In some commercial use terms and conditions they talk about an embeddable player that allows ads.  When I go to a video it seems like the adds are inconsistent.  Some are at the beginning and some are popups.  I did notice the attached popup which make me think the player was built to allow adds and I wanted to confirm this.  Do you have documentation on whether this functionality is add enabled or not?

For training that is not for profit it is unclear of whether you can embed a video or not.  Do you provide any direction on this?

Hey, Julie! Unfortunately, your image didn't come through, so I'm not sure what you're seeing.

Just to make sure we're all on the same page, is the issue that ads could be displayed in an embedded video in your course and you're concerned that will be an issue for training provided by a non-profit organization?

Here, maybe a jpg will work.  No, that is not the issue.  We want the ads to be able to be played as it appears that is a requirement of commercial use of online videos.  

Can we create a training, embed, say a YouTube video, if we are not profiting from the training.  It is only for internal purposes.

Hi Julie,

You should be able to see ads on embedded videos. I would try it out and if it's not working as expected for a particular video, please get in touch with our Support Team so they can take a look. You can submit a case here.

In the meantime, if there's anything else I can do to help, please let me know!
