How do I insert a training video on my page?

In the past I would use a Multimedia macro, however this functionality has been removed from Confluence Cloud.  And the supported macros page shows no substitute for this capability.

I've been building training pages in Confluence for years - is there a work around that someone knows of?

Hi @David Allyn ,

You can upload your video to page by using "Files & Images"image.png

Thank you @KAGITHALA BABU ANVESH for your advice - that's definitely a work around. 

We've always had the ability to attach files to pages and I've deliberately chosen not to do that, because clicking and downloading the video content to play on their computer is a cumbersome/long process - especially for big video files. 


Do you happen to know how to *stream* videos directly on the page, by chance?

After testing...  @KAGITHALA BABU ANVESH you are correct - Thank You!

When I attached a mp4 file in my page, it attaches *with a player* - this is new behavior as it used to just attach as an icon or link, and you were required to use the macro to play videos.

It works now.  Thanks!
