2198027 - "Not a valid URL or embed code" error message when attempting to embed a video in SAP Jam


When attempting to embed a video into SAP Jam using the video widget an error message "Not a valid URL or embed code" appears and the video cannot be embedded.


This occurs if a video format that is not supported is attempted to be embedded. The only supported video formats for the video widget currently are Youtube, Vimeo, Kaltura, or SAP Jam. Attempting to embed other video formats will result in the error message.  Video types are restricted because SAP cannot provide blanket support for embedded iframes in either the SAP Jam wiki/blog editor or the Overview Page Designer as to do so would introduce security risks associated with rogue javascript/iframe content.


The currently support URLs are:
