Embedding videos hosted in AWS S3

Hi! I’m having trouble setting a url from s3 into a video element. The video is public, it can be played in the browser
But when in the video element it says Invalid embed type: link
If anybody knows where I’m going wrong?

@Fisiomoviment.activa I not 100% sure, but aws is not supported by webflow


I already read that post and at the bottom Pixl3 wrote a code to embed a background video hostend in w3, which is almost what i pretend, and that I can do right now. But instead of background video, I want an ordinary one. There might be a clue for that?

Also here are instructions to set up w3 as a host for webflow:

Hi! I’m embedding the video from s3 with this code and it works. I just wondered why embedding the ‘video’ element didn’t work:

video width=“320” height=“240” controls>
source src=“” type=“video/mp4”>

Because the Video Media Element of Webflow only takes a link to a Vimeo or Youtube video page.

If you need to link and external video, what you did is the only way.

If you add the video embed code in the cms template, you can add any video in the editor.
We created a knowledgable and all the editor needed to do was to add the filename (which was the variable)

Let me know if you have any questions on this.

If/when Webflow add it as a feature then this would be amazing.

I tried to put the code in the custom code at the settings, but suppose that’s not it? If you could give me another clue?

Hey @Fisiomoviment.activa

You have to put it in a css template page - you’ll see it listed. Have a look at the screenshot.
Let me know if that helps.


Great @PiXL3! thank you all!
