    Embedding Youtube video in V4 form builder

    Asked by debatnl on April 03, 2017 at 01:20 PM


    A while ago I embedded some Youtube video's via a HTML text in a form in V3. This doesn't seem to work in V4. In V4 the Youtube video doesn't show up after saving the text. I checked the embed code, HTML code en the CSS code used, but couldn't find any problems. I switched back to V3 and suddenly it was possible to embed via HTML. 


    Is there a reason embedding video's doesn't work in V4 without using a widget?


    Kind regards,

    Please try to add the YoutTube embed video code into a Source code of the Text field. It seems to be working properly on my end.

    Here is a quick animation:

    The alternative is our YouTube widget.
