Here's some good news. The status of the request is changed to "feature started"!  This indicates that the feature is under development and likely to make its way into a future update. Meanwhiule, check out the "Anima Plugin" that can help insert videos and gifs in your XD document.  Hope this helps, Harshika

Two years for this to even begin feature development for something like this which I'd consider to be a fundamental aspect of any UX design software is not okay to be honest. I'm merely a software developer who also does designs for the systems I work on and even I know how crucial this is. I'm really looking forward to seeing it come to fruition and XD has A LOT of potential, but over the past year of gradually switching to using XD to create designs for our systems at my work, I've realised that Adobe XD feels like a product that was released about 4 years too early and is only just catching up to the other systems already out there.

I totally agree with this. If they did only this, it would contribute an incredible ability and help them exceed anyone in the market. They do own After Effects that's already an invaluable product. All they had to do is to shift a few resources from there.

Hello everyone,

I would like to discuss with you what I believe may be the next step for Adobe XD.

 

Currently, when we want to create an animation in XD, we have to address the elements and their variations (X, Y, size, etc.) on each screen.

 

What if we had a separate file with the animation and imported it (as a component) into our prototype. That way we could have the animations in separate files and using that component, the animation would be imported together.

 

This would reduce the number of screens per prototype by more than 50% (especially in complex animations)

Adobe should be able to allow users to import GIFs during the design and GIF should play only when previewing designs

Does anyone know if it is possible to include videos within the XD prototypes? If so, which operating systems does it work in and how do you add the videos?

Hi, kimberleyb25080045​-

Unfortunately, that functionality isn't yet supported in Adobe XD. Please do upvote the idea in UserVoice: Import Videos & Animated GIFs – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs

Hello, the answer is now 2 years and 4 months old. Is there a positive development for designers?
Thank you very much.

The recent update on the post says that the feature has been started. That usually indicates that the feature is well on its way into a future update.

Thanks,

I am checking with the team. If that feature hasn't made it by now, the team must have changed its priority for some reason.

So, almost three years after the initial question, still no video...

Of course not, because implementing video is a can of worms !

 

As soon as this pops up, every one wants their preferred format and feature with it. From simply looping to full-blown editing, from poster frames to cue points, from linked Youtube and Vimeo iframes to embedded MP4 and HEIV, from animated GIF support to HTML5 animation. And I bet even some one will put out a request for Flash...

And of course the first Community question will be: "Why doesn't my Autoplay work ?"

 

So I can understand why the product manager and the team are reluctant to even think of supporting video.

Unless they dare to impose very rigid restrictions to what can and can't be done, we'll just be kept waiting.

I think you've got a good point.

 

But for me adding a video will be mainly used to help the client imagine what the final page will look like. It doesn't need to be fancy, if it only support gif, it's fine for me, XD is just a prototyping app and we need to remember this 🙂

I'm glad that we're both on the same page, because video is a delicate matter, often underestimated in its complications and implications.

 

Support for GIF would be the least obvious and favorable, with regards to how to create GIFs before getting them into XD, and why to support them at all. Users will rightfully and endlessly start to complain about the horrible quality, which is due to a very coarse compression method, totally unfit for photos – not to mention video. 

 

And what about file size ? Users will simply expect to toss in any raw video footage (HD or even 4K, which is totally unnecessary, but who cares), adding a truck load of hundreds of embedded MBs to the file size. So that's a huge technical consequence to be dealt with...

 

If Adobe XD is going to support any video file and format to be imported, then I bet they'll start with a strategic one, e.g. WebM (just to tease Apple) or MOV and MP4 with the H.264/5 codec (just to please Apple). Who knows ?

Just a feature to show a background video or something would be good 😞 I will have to look at sketch if you say it can do this?

Ha ! Just Google "Sketch video import" and you'll find a similar mysterious incapacity in the Sketch ecosphere. There's no mention of a plug-in for that on theire Extensions page, there's some flawed plug-in supporting GIF import (one reviewer reported he quicly disabled it again), and another one to use linked YouTube videos (so you first need to upload them and be online to preview them). So the grass isn't much greener on the other side.

Like I said: video is a can of worms...
