    I tried to follow these directions, but they are for a flash video:

    The Embed Code provided by Screencast doesn't work when pasted as a source code in a JotForm text element. Here it is:

     

    <!-- copy and paste. Modify height and width if desired. -->

           <object name="Video" type="video/x-ms-wmv"

       width="1138" height="705"> 

       <param name="url" value="https://content.screencast.com/users/ETSI/folders/Online%20Training/media/e0048c2c-de84-4677-ae22-de67be73d2a8/True%20Grit%20Video.wmv"></param>

       <param name="src" value="https://content.screencast.com/users/ETSI/folders/Online%20Training/media/e0048c2c-de84-4677-ae22-de67be73d2a8/True%20Grit%20Video.wmv"></param>

       <param name="AutoStart" value="0"></param>

       <param name="ShowControls" value="true"></param>

       <param name="uiMode" value="full"></param>

       <param name="playCount" value="1"></param>

       <param name="CurrentPosition" value="0"></param> 

    </object>

    Yes, I have done that as well. I’ve also used a link to Screencast and Youtube’s embed code. They work fine, but the screen size is too small.

    I want the user to be able to see a larger video screen. Unfortunately, I can’t make the youtube widget video any larger and I can’t get a Screencast embed to work.

    You can adjust the widget sizing from the that widgets options menu:

    The width will not exceed the form width so you may need to make the form wider to allow for a larger video.
