I would like to embed a video into a resource description, a blog I'm writing, or a page I'm customizing into my uConnect platform. 

To do so, you must use a shortcode instead of the embed code you get from Youtube, Vimeo, or any other video platform you're using.

Example:

The embed code/iframe tag you will get from YouTube, Vimeo, etc

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ARH-FQpEXm0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

What works on the uConnect platform

Generally, the solution is to use the iframe shortcode and that entails deleting the closing </iframe> tag and changing the < and > signs to [ and ] :

[iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ARH-FQpEXm0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen]
