    Inserting video using html

    Asked by hannahlittle1 on December 20, 2016 at 06:45 PM

    I'm trying to embed a video in a form with the following code:

    <video width="200" controls>

      <source src="https://ai.vub.ac.be/~hannah/signals_for_playback/videos/client1@134.184.26.121_phase3_8.mp4" type="video/mp4">

      Your browser does not support the video tag.

    </video>

    The video box is showing but it is not playable and i can't figure out why. Is the html video tag functional on jotform?

    Thanks.

    There is no direct way  to upload a video to JotForm to let it show on your form.

    But the workaround is that, you upload it via Youtube or other video sharing services, get the code and paste it in a Text field element in order for your video to appear on the form.

    Hope this helps.
