How to embed a loom video in a page?

Edited

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

https://www.loom.com/share/5f42d456bf4e42b88d4649124a5dafc2

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"

Looking at the http headers for Loom it looks like they do not allow iframing of their site. So, you would need to download the video and then upload it to Confluence. You should then be able to embed it.
