    Thank you for contacting us.

    I just tested youtube video widget and was able to attach a video. Here's what you need to do to attach your video.

    1. Go to your youtube video then click on Share then copy the URL

    2. Add Youtube widget then paste the URL

    You should now see your thumbnail or the video loaded.

    Hi Jed,

    Thanks your your quick reply :)

    I think the reason was partly because my video was private, however now i have made the video unlisted but still getting the below message once i have added the URL:

    Is this your form http://www.jotform.co/form/41471968029866? Is this the videos you were referring to  and ? If yes, I can already see the embedded video. Try clearing your browser's cache or use a different browser and see if that helps?

    By the way, I wasn't able to see the attached image in your previous response.

    Ive cleared the history, in both chrome and internet explorer and still getting the below error.

    Any other suggestions?

    I can see that the video you have added works.

    When I add the url it also says operation timed out.

    Hello KDavies1983,

    Lime my colleague, I am also unable to replicate the issue you are having. I did check your form and it seems to work as expected. It does display the youTube video and also rest of the form.

    Based on the screenshot above, are you having issue when you click on the "Preview" button of your form editor? Please click on your form's direct URL and see if you continue to have this issue:  http://form.jotform.co/form/41471968029866

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!
