Hi Team,

I want to know the steps which needs to be followed to embed the video in report.

I have checked below links however steps are not clear.

Hi Sameer,

Thanks for reaching out to support. I was fascinated by the links provided; I've never seen screenshots of YF 5 as it was well before my time here! That said, the UI and general functionality has changed dramatically in the last 9 + years.

The current method of embedding videos should be easily achievable in V9 Dashboards and Present through Code Mode; in V8, you can do some video embedding such as Youtube in the Story format. It looks like you are currently on 7.3 however? These options would not be available in that build, and you may need to embed Yellowfin, as opposed to the video, in that case. Is upgrading a potential solution here?

Thanks,

Eric

Hi Eric,

Thank you for the response.

Can you confirm if video can be embedded in report or only dashboard and story mode?

Hi Sameer,

At this time video cannot be embedded in Report Mode. I'm not immediately seeing anything in our platform that indicates that this is currently in the pipeline, but I will double check to make sure. If not, I could create a request to developers to look into this functionality for potential inclusion in a future version, would you be interested in pursuing this?

Thanks,

Eric

HI SAmeer,

I'm going to go ahead and mark this ticket as Answered due to inactivity, feel welcome to re-open with a reply if you'd like to get a developer task going to investigate this functionality.

Thanks,

Eric
