    Hi and thanks for contacting us.


    There is a way to add a video and that is by inserting a Free Text field in your form.

    To add a Free Text field:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  On the left side of the Form Builder, under the Power Tools, double-click or drag the Free Text (HTML) tool into your form

    3.  Click on the free text field you inserted
    4.  Click the HTML button in the toolbar


    5.  Paste your video embed code, for example:

    6.  Click OK then save your form

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hey I just tried this and it did not work.  What am I doing wrong?  I copied the embed code from youtube and changed it to auoplay (which I always do) and nothing happened

    Hi, The Answer is No. You can Embed Videos from other providers too, if they have embed option like youtube. I think most of the free video stream providers have this option.

    Can you please tell us specifically from which video stream provider you want to embed the videos?

    So that we can check and let you know whether you can embed or not.

    Thank you.
