I want to embed a screen recording taken with loom inside a Confluence page.
The advice for embedding videos in pages is to use a "Widget Connector" macro.
That macro requires a URL for the widget.
Each loom video has a public URL, like this
If I use this as the widget URL, then the page just shows a generic widget connection icon, and clicking it won't open the video.
Loom provides its own tools for embedding videos. For that video, it will generate this embedding code.
<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.loom.com/embed/5f42d456bf4e42b88d4649124a5dafc2" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>
My organization has HTML macros disabled, so I can't just insert this directly. I tried using the src attribute (https://www.loom.com/embed/5f42d456bf4e42b88d4649124a5dafc2) for the widget URL in the Widget Connector, but that had the same result as before.
How can I embed the recording?
Update: loom support states that they are "working on bringing [the existing Jira integration] to Confluence.
Downloading the video from loom and uploading the resulting mp4 file works.
Smart links now allow you to embed Loom. https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-articles/Smart-Links-a-richer-way-to-hyperlink/ba-p/1412786
1. Paste the Loom URL into a Confluence page.
2. Click on the URL while in edit mode
3. Select "Display as embed"
