Hi. Is it posible embed YouTube videos in items (points, polygons and lines)?

Hi chava,

Not yet, but I think it’s a really important feature and I would like to add it soon!

@chava @Breece it is now possible to embed videos in description fields. You need to use the {iframe src="..."} format.

For example, in a Youtube videos share page, you get this code:

<iframe width="560" height="315" 
src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/z7VYVjR_nwE" frameborder="0" 
allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" 
allowfullscreen></iframe>

You need to take the src= part and transform it like this:

{iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/z7VYVjR_nwE"}

I created a map to demonstrate it here: https://maphub.net/hyperknot/video-embed
