Solved Is it possible to add BB media tags for facebook videos in Invision?

Post by The Lone Ranger on November 23rd 2013, 12:21 am

As per the title, we can add Youtube and Dailymotion but my members are asking for Facebook videos to be able to be embedded in their posts. I can do it with a link to the facebook page which will open when clicked, but can it be done to show an Iframe type video like Youtube?

Does Facebook offer codes to share videos?  If they do, you can use the flash button to add videos not from Youtube or Dailymotion.

When you click on the "Options" button below the video there is an embed code, but it looks like a big chunk of HTML, so I just strip the actual URL to the video and use that as a clickable link. What would I have to do with the "Flash" icon to get this to work?

You're welcome. If the video is private or non-shareable, then it will not appear.
