Embed Video in Business Central

Last week my marketing manager asked me is it possible to embed product video in business central ? and my quick answer was YES.

Here how we can add the video in business central. for this I created simple extension

1) Added on field to hold an video URL

2) Create one page extension with action button to play the video URL.

Publish the extension and below was the result.

To Play video inside application you need to add embed URL as below

If the URL is without embed then video will play outside the application

Hope this will help you all.

Stay tune for more.
