I tried to use this with a custom domain as well as with YouTube in one post, but there was always an error, “this domain is not allowed”. What domains are allowed, actually?

Hi Tim. Yes, I am sure we are allowed to embed media here. Last week I tried and I couldn’t do it. Then, I checked and realized the video I was trying to add here wasn’t “public” on Youtube. If the video is not public or isn’t listed there, you cannot share it here.

Dear @Juliana Spinardi : you are right, sorry if the question was slightly loaded.

YouTube indeed works. Even the video I wanted to embed in the mentioned post works now. I suppose it was just too early as I had uploaded the video mere minutes before trying to embed it.

 

My custom domain, genieblog.ch (with the video file https://test.genieblog.ch/public/PipefyPhone.mov equivalent to the YouTube file) is probably either (a) indeed forbidden, as it would be a security risk to allow any domains, or (b) lacks the required meta-infos.

 

To actually answer my question, what domains work: first tests show that at least YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, work.
