Can you include video in an HTML table?

Hi there,

I have created an HTML table card that displays images (not links to the images but the actual images themselves). I've used a case statement because the dashboard the HTML table card is on gets filtered by category.

Here is the generalized beast mode I made to display the images:

CASE


WHEN 'Category' = 'C1'


THEN CONCAT(''

<IMG src="

IMAGE_LOCATION_URL_FOR_C1

" style="max-width: 300px; max-height: 269px;">

'')

WHEN 'Category' = 'C12'


THEN CONCAT(''

<IMG src="

IMAGE_LOCATION_URL_FOR_C2

" style="max-width: 300px; max-height: 269px;">

'')

END

Is it possible to do something similar with video?

    @user015090 Yes! This is a feature switch. If you contact [email protected] they should be able to assist you in enabling that feature for your instance. This will only allow videos in the HTML tables, none of the other tables in Domo.

    I was able to find a similar way to upload a video using the HTML table that someone has tried in the past. Here is the format they used:

    <video controls="" width="320" height="240">

        <source src="http://test.test.com/video/990/89079890ffd0dab8726">
    </video>
    

    It looks like it works within the analyzer, but not in production of the card. I think this might have been fixed or something that needs to be enabled for your instance. Maybe try something similar to the above code and I will follow up with you on this when I have a definite answer. I am determining if this was resolved or what can be done to enable this.

    I tried using <video></video> and it did not work. As Aknowles mentions, perhaps something needs to be enabled.

    CONCAT('<div style="text-align:center;border:0px white;border-collapse:collapse;"><video width="320" height="240" controls><source src="https://mysite.com/image/movie.mp4" type="video/mp4"><source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg"></video></div>','')

  • Update: I reached out to DOMO support as was suggested and was told "Unfortunately, you cannot upload a video directly into an HTML table element of the DOMO platform. " So it seems like this is not possible.

    I think you could accomplish this using an HTML table DDX brick. Search "HTML Table Brick" in the Domo appstore.

    @user015090 - with an html brick (like using images), you wouldn't upload the video to Domo. You "host" the video on a server, youtube, or wherever, and call the video as I showed in my earlier comment. In my test, I pushed a video up to a location I already had on the internet. Then called that video with its URL.
