I am not sure about the HTML5 video .We need to use video tag not sure about that.
<video id="sampleMovie" src="HTML5Sample.mov" width=”640” height=”360”></video>
but aware of how you can embed a youtube videos.Please find the below approach
- Copy the embed URL for the video. If your video is on YouTube, the URL should look similar to the following: //www.youtube.com/embed/<text>.
- In Tableau Desktop, open the dashboard.
- On the Side Bar, double-click Web Page.
- In the Edit URL dialog box, paste the embed code, and then click OK.
There are a number of options when embedding YouTube videos into Tableau.
- Each video on YouTube has it's own URL. The URL for this video is:
Under each video in YouTube there is a "Share" option. This returns a link for the video.
There is also an "Embed" option which has a link listed in some HTML code.
If you input each one of these as "Webpage" URL in Tableau you will notice that the first two show the entire YouTube page, while the third one embeds the video as a full window. Notice that in each case the video ID is exactly the same,KdoBuNNvVec. The third link, the "embed" link, will be our starting point.
Here is a list of useful parameters when embedding YouTube videos that can be added to the link.
&hd=1 Embeds the video in high definition
Note - this won't work embedding iframes
&vq=hd720 Alternate version which should work in Tableau &start=35 Starts the video at a specific time in seconds (in this case at 35 seconds) &autoplay=1 Sets autoplay feature so that video starts automatically
(default is to not start automatically)
&color=white Changes the color on the playback bar to white instead of the default red
Note - white disables modestbranding
&rel=0 Disables the related videos at the end of the video &autohide=1 Hides all controls and video title on start &autohide=2 Shows play controls, but hides all other controls and video title on start &showsearch=0 Prevents users from searching for other videos &modestbranding=1 Removes YouTube branding to make videos look more professional &loop=1&playlist=KdoBuNNvVec Loops video after playback
Note - this will not loop a partial video using &start. It will alternate instead.
Putting some of these together embeds a full screen high definition video that autoplays starting at 50 seconds with auto-hide controls.
HI This is for youtube embeding. I don't have any issues with youtube.
but i'm talking about the physical video files on my hard drive. I have 10 MP4 video files that I have recorded with my drone about a project. I would like to embed it to play them. I tried to use HTML5 to make a webpage and have tableau look for that webpage. but it will redirect to my browser and play the file.
Is there any ways to just play it inside the tableau container?
I think this isn´t allow by Tableau Desktop.
Just with the steps that Rajeev said.
Is it possible to insert video in which versions? In 10.1 I can not, even following the steps above.
