I'm trying to insert a Youtube video by url but the option is greyed out in the Media panel in version 15.1.2
I'm creating a Publish Online doc. Has this feature been dropped? Is there a workaround?
Thanks, Mike, that worked. Looks like I needed to select an empty placeholder. Now the problem is that, 'The url must contain http:// as prefix and reference mp4 or mov video formats". But the YouTube url begins with https and doesn't refer to a file format.
The media panel is used for embedding local video files. For a Publish Online doc + youtube video, use a button with a URL link to the youtube video.
Thanks, Jeffrey. So it's not possible to embed the video in the Publish Online document?
Haven't tried with Publish Online but go to Youtube and copy the embed code there. Then use the object >insert html command in InDesign.
Brilliant, Bob, that's done the trick. Thanks!
AFAIK It's not possible to embed a youtube video.
The method Bob suggests does not actually embed the video, rather is an iframe to the video.
