Able post videos in Post directly from Resources

In our new Finalsite website, we have made the conscious decision to use much more video content throughout the website as this is so much more engaging to the user. This has worked really well in the Composer module, loading the videos into Resources and then selecting the video element in Composer to show the videos. 

 

However in the Posts module, which we use predominately for News items, it doesn't seem possible to load the video from Resouces. I am having to load into You tube first, then use the embed code to display the video in a post. Going forward, news items are more and more involving video elements to engage the website user, so to have them distracted by You tube adverts when viewing our videos through the post module is frustrating when we know in Composer it works beautifully loading direct from resources. 

Please let me know if I have misunderstood and there is a way to do this already.

Thanks

    Hi Ingrid,

    There is, unfortunately, not yet a way to do this in the editor in Posts. Other schools have asked for this feature as well, and we can absolutely see the value in being able to embed Resource videos directly into a Post. We will definitely consider adding this feature at some point in the future.

    Best,

    Lauren
