Hi @nancytreads_xpo,


Your link is breaking because it includes the extra app=desktop URL parameter in the link. That URL parameter is a tool that mobile browsers use to request the desktop version of a web page. For your embedded video, that parameter is superfluous.

Try using the shareable URL that YouTube provides under the video:

[video|https://youtu.be/1w_27zB7Hxc]

The embed link above should render as:



Note that I’ve also used the simplified version of the URL embed. If your video doesn’t require a caption, we recommend using this method. If your video requires a caption, use this format:

[video|https://youtu.be/1w_27zB7Hxc]This is a caption.[/video]


The example above will render with a caption below the video.

This is a caption.
