Please check that the URL is for a supported video file (.mp4, .m4v, .webm, .ogv, .flv) or stream (e.g. YouTube and Vimeo). I have tried three different themes and multiple links, all the same failure. Aug 27, 2019 at 6:30 am #3359499 kokkiehStaff Hi there, This is a bug with the widget. For now, please use a text widget instead. If you paste the URL on its own line in that widget, the video should embed correctly. Aug 27, 2019 at 9:17 pm #3359931 qasefk2Member Thanks!
