Embedding videos directly into Power BI reports is a great way to show the user how to use the report, to showcase the product the report is about or any other reason you can think of.
Getting the embed code
Please note that depending on the location of the video, the embed code looks different so we can’t share a solution that works for every case. What we’ll show you is the solution we are using for all our videos. We are hosting our videos in an Azure storage account. We are doing this, because not every video platform allows embedding videos and having the video in Azure, eliminates this problem.
Please go ahead and download the sample report to see the measure we used to add the video.
Please note that we can also host your videos in our Azure account. Just reach out to us to discuss this option.
❗ Videos don’t play in Power BI Desktop but only in published reports in Power BI Service
To make sure the video is using the full size of the visual, make sure the Full Width option is activated. Note that this option is only available when a valid license key has been entered.
