I USED TO BE ABLE TO INSERT A LINK FROM YOUTUBE. MO MORE? Has the navigation changed that badly? How does one do this now, if still possible?

Hello @mattL48 ,

 

You can still insert YouTube links, in either the video block or via one of the other linking methods. However, YouTube "shorts" are not compatible links based on their structure, so they won't work with the regular video block. To link "shorts" type YT links, we'd recommend using one of the other linking methods - text, image, or button.

I tried to upload a YouTube video into a video block on an email, but I get the death spin and it didn't upload. It's a 2 minute video. I don't want to invest in Vimeo. I already have a good app to make, edit and store my videos. Is it something I did wrong or has there been a change to the video functionality? Thanks,

Margie

Hi @MargieC7. In order to troubleshoot further, we'll need some additional information. What is the URL for the video? Was this video ever set to private?
