Description of problem

Hi guys.

As you may have seen, I have a lot of news posts on the site, but the thing I have not been able to do is post videos to go with those articles or those videos that come with Twitter posts.

Can someone tell me how can I add these videos to my news posts?

Thank you.

Do those videos have a way to share on the site where they are?

From the MSN.com site, no. From Twitter, no.

Twitter should have a way to share tweets.

I would assume only if you are following that person. For example, I had a "Good News" post with a tweet form the Missouri State Highway Patrol. There was a video attached to it, but I didn't know how to obtain it. I have another post about this mess with the Trump Administration and the immigration policy. I couldn't get that video either.

Notice the arrow to the right of the follow button.  Click it and select embed tweet option.  Also make sure that the box for include media is checked.

I guess that was the easy one. lol. Thanks for the help on the Twitter end, but there's still videos (at times) on MSN's site.

I'm gonna settle with the Twitter embed code and call it good. Consider this one solved with my sincere thanks.

You will have to look on MSN to see if they allow you to share their videos.  If yes, you will need to look on MSN on how to do it.
