Hi,

 

Can tell me why I can't insert a URL video into InDesign?

(Here is the video I need to insert:https://youtu.be/H9l2PSHHyYM?si=RGnJO4hM0hEay4YN)

I have tried two ways but they both didn't work.

1. I placed video from URL, but when I insert the link above, it said something like this屏幕截图 2023-12-17 211055.png

 

2. I went to Object>Edit HTML, and insert this:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/H9l2PSHHyYM?si=mcsrr1ZviknGGgn9" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" allowfullscreen></iframe>

but it said this:

屏幕截图 2023-12-17 211453.png

 

I am preparing for an art project. Thanks for your assitance in advance. Hope someone can reply to me soon. Thanks again!

Works okay here using InDesign 19.0.1 on Windows 11. Try a new document. Does it work?

Try trashing your prefs.

Hi Bob,

Thanks a lot for your prompt answer.

I reset my prefs (Start InDesign, and then press Shift+Ctrl+Alt. Click Yes when asked if you want to delete preference files.), but it still didn't work. Just can't figure out why...

Have you checked your firewall?

What is the end game here? What are you going to use this document for? EPUB? Publish Online?

I got the message and I'll post here what I told you privately....This will never work with a PDF.

Hi Bob,

Thanks a lot for your help. 

It hasn't come to the exported file. I just can't figure out why you can insert the video but I can't. "Works okay here using InDesign 19.0.1 on Windows 11. " I just can't understand the caveats InDesign told. 

So, if I want to show the video in my portfolio as a PDF (interactive), should inserting a URL link the best option?

Frankly, it's your ONLY option. Just put a hyperlink in that takes the user to YouTube, but be aware that most users will get a security alert.

 

I see you deleted the video from YouTube so I can't even check it again.

One more thing that is well worth mentioning. Adobe includes FREE Portfolio websites with your CC subscription. I would encourage you to look into it. It's far more professional to have a website to refer users to. Adobe Portfolio | Build your own personalized website

Thank you for your valuable advice. Eventually, to solve the current issue, I just put a hyperlink and it works. Thanks again.
