Is there a way to add not just a photo but even video to an item?

I’ll look into adding iframes, and then you can simply embed Youtube and Vimeo videos via iframes.

That would be awesome!

Hello, I love the simplicity of your interface! Very easy to use. I’m also interested in posting videos and having them appear when someone clicks on the pin. Would love to know when the video capabilities are available.

@parkproject, @Jeanne 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

You can read more about it in this blog post:

This new feature has worked with one YouTube video I put into an item, but in another item it creates a space for it but doesn’t show anything. This is the code I inserted: {iframe src=“https://youtu.be/JaTPAlxQN9Y”}

Any ideas?

Hi, you need to use the Youtube embed code to get the right URL.

Excellent! It works now! Funny how for some videos the normal link works and for others only the embed code link works. I’ll remember that for future embeds. - Thanks a million!
