Trying to insert a video link from TED Talks and CC is telling me "That link doesn't look right. Did you type it correctly?" 

 

It is the right link and I coped it directly from the TED copy link function. Tried several times - no luck. Any advice please?

Hello @LindaA067 ,

 

Only videos from Vimeo, Wistia, or YouTube are compatible with the video block. If the video is available on one of those platforms, you can use their applicable share URLs to insert into the block. Otherwise, to insert video links from other sites, you'll need to use a text, image, or button block to attach to.
