Qustion: Can I embed video into D2L discussion posts (ie. a youtube video)? questions and answers

Answer:

When trying to embed video into a D2L discussion, it breaks with a 500 error.
upon examination of the embed code, the protocol is missing from the source.

example:
<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/xtNhf0eA120?rel=0″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>  Note the src=”//www…..

SOLUTION: In order to successfully embed a video you’ll need to alter that bit of code to be http://www…..  or https://www….
Reported  this to the MnSCU D2L team, as the embed preview works.
