Support embedding from other sources

Allow for embedding videos from other sources like YouTube and Vimeo into the channel. There are thousands of great training videos available through these services that could easily be added into new or existing channels. Or, if you find a great news video about your company or industry, you could embed that into a channel and share it out via Yammer.

    We don’t support embedding videos from other sources to video portal yet. As a work around, you could embed videos to a SharePoint page as a way to collect a list of videos for distribution. Will that be a sufficient workaround before we fully implement embedding other videos into the video portal?

        This is a MUST HAVE for our company. As others have said, there is a plethora of good content - that even Microsoft has produced - on YouTube (how to' training) that would be an invaluable part of content we could make available to users on a more permanent (than a Yammer post, or SharePoint post) basis via O365 Video. Sort it. Please?

        Embedding videos is something that wordpress does right out of the box. Since they do it, shouldn't this be an easy thing to do for this?

        I think, like others have commented, that this might be a workaround for now but it very limited in features and capabilities that are found within the Video Portal and channels. This would also create siloed video solutions that goes against best practices. It would be financially beneficial for Microsoft to add this feature, as Education institutions would see this as a value add. For that, I think you should reassess the priority.

        Using a SP page will require you to essentially rebuild some video portal UI bringing in external videos and video portal videos. Would work, but if you need edit capabilitites to set it up and modify etc, then possibly a lot of dev effort.

        Please add this feature! Teachers cannot create all of the content they need for their courses and must rely on outside videos (like Khan Academy, YouTube, etc.). It's great to have the channels, but they need to be able to house everything in one location for student access. Please add this feature!

        This is a critical feature that would make O365 Video useful to our company. Without it, O365 Video remains in the group of "partial solution" applications.
