Wrap Text Around a Video?

Thanks in advance for any help.  Is there anyway I can wrap text around a video similar to the Muse capability of wrapping text around an image?

I would like to position an .mp4 video on the right margin of my page and just have the text flow around it.  Can't believe that  I can't do it!

Any help please?

Why shouldn’t this be not possible? It works the very same way as it works, when you wrap text around images, rectangles, text frames or other elements:

The only „restriction" for now: These objects don’t react responsively as inline elements.

But even this restriction can be defeated, it you place the video widget into a composition, and place this composition into the text flow.

You say „… similar to the Muse capability of wrapping text around an image“. I assume,  you didn’t try this up to now.

Text wrapping in HTML is very restricted and doesn’t work like in print  layout at all. The only way, to wrap text on homepages is, to paste the element just like a text snippet into a text frame. Having done this, you can switch on and configure text wrapping.

And exactly this is the way, it works for video widgets too.

Muse can’t wrap images, which are not placed inline into a text frame, like for example InDesign does. Why? Because HTML can’t do this.
