We have SharePoint 2013 classic team site and it does not have publishing features enabled. now inside the team site we have a Discussion board list, and i want to embed a video inside its body,so users can play the video. but when i create a new discussion board list item, i did not get any web part or option to upload the video, as follow:-

enter image description here

now i do not want to enable the publishing features on this site as it will have many drawbacks on the current content. but on other site collections which have publishing features enabled i can get a web parts to upload the video, as follow:- enter image description here

so inside a team site which does not have publishing features enabled, this how i can embed a video inside a discussion board list item’s body, so users can play the video directly ?


SharePoint 2013 – YouTube embed full screen not working in IE 11

Youtube embed iframe full screen option is not working in IE 11 . I have done some troubleshooting and below are some key facts.

  1. Full screen option works if I change the compatibility mode to Edge. But SP Seattle masterpage defaults to IE 10 compatibility mode and full screen does not work

  2. I have tried allowfullscreen attribute but no luck with IE 11.

  3. The full screen option works in Chrome and other browsers. 4.Another interesting observation from a user is that this used to work before.

  4. Tried same thing in SharePoint online and same result in IE 11.

Have anyone of you experienced this problem in SharePoint lately.

Broken video thumbnail with video embed media module and vimeo upload

I don’t know exactly where i’m doing wrong.
I have enabled Video Embed Media Module.I have created a media type with video embed type.
I have created free basic account in ‘’ for testing purpose by selecting “private,edit,upload,public” access.
Also I’m Using ‘Vimeo Upload Module to upload video to Vimeo’.
When i copy any new vimeo video url for first time,the thumbnail will be broken.Original Image itself was not created(In files/video_thumbnails). In some cases, whenever i copy some old uploaded video url, im getting the thumbnail. chmod 755,permission is given for ‘sites/default/files’ system.
What might be the problem? Please suggest me…

Also I have one more problem, Hard refresh is required to get the images in the pages wherever image style is applied.

Can we use Google Drive to embed Mathematica CDF demonstrations in the new Google Sites?

I am concerned here with the exact premise of the following question on Mathematica Stack Exchange:

How to embed a Mathematica demonstration in Google sites

The very-helpful top-voted answer already explains the Mathematica notebook to CDF file conversion, as well as the creation of the Index HTML file, with the appropriate file entry.

However, the answer talks about maintaining both these files, cdf and Index.htm “into a folder on the server”. Sorry for a noob question, but I can’t find a way of doing this, where is this folder supposed to be located?

Here’s what I tried: I tried using the “From (Google) Drive” option in the Insert tab, maintaining one folder in the drive itself which contained both the Index and the cdf file. enter image description here

But apparently, this doesn’t seem to be the folder that the answer above seems to be referring to.

Can someone enlighten me with how exactly is supposed to be accomplished? (Note: there is no real compulsion to necessarily use only Google Drive to the desired end, alternatives will be greatly appreciated.)

How can I embed a view in an email sent by Rules without resorting to the PHP filter?

I want to embed a view in an email sent by the Rules module using the standard “Send mail” action. I have the Mime Mail and Mail System modules installed, and I can send HTML email when it is included in the body of a rule.

Based on this question, I tried the Insert View module, but that only allows views to be inserted into node content, not rules (which are entities, but Insert View does not support generic entities). I tried adding [view:view_name=display_name] to the message body of my rule, but the view did not appear. To make sure it wasn’t working, I added another rule with the “show a message” action and tried to embed the view there, which also didn’t work. However, I can place the exact same code inside a node body and the view DOES appear, so it appears that Insert View does not work with Rules.

Entity Views Attachment does support generic entities, but this “attaches” the view, whereas what I am trying to do is embed the view in a rule’s email message body like this:




I also only need to do this for one email, so if possible, I would like to add something like a custom token for Rules to embed the view, but I’m not sure how to go about that.

“Embed” iframe web part not working

I have been experimenting with the new SharePoint communication sites, and I love the new web parts. However, I’ve been having an issue with the “Embed” web part. I understand that it only takes iFrames, but I’m having two different issues with it.

  1. When I try to embed a post from Facebook (from which I can create a custom iframe embed code) it doesn’t work – even though Facebook is listed as an approved site in my SharePoint tenant. I get a message that says “We can’t show this embedded content because the code seems to be incomplete. Make sure that the embed code includes width, height and a valid address for the src attribute. “

  2. Sites like instagram and twitter don’t export embed codes using iframe, so I have been trying to write my own, but those don’t work either.

I am able to get embeds from YouTube working. Any idea why this could be failing?

Thank you!

Why do we need to embed an interpreter in a program?

Why do programs need such an extension? What is the real fundamental feature that it provides?

Emacs starts up as an editor (which probably has m functions that takes n inputs) with an interpreted language Elisp running in the background (which can be used to change the behavior of the program).

Assuming this is how a program is in memory:

Program in memory

Is it because, without an interpreter, your program is just a finite machine that can execute a finite set of instructions in the text segment (code section). However, when you add something like an interpreter, you can add new instructions (probably in the heap – data and instruction is the same principle) and make it behave like an infinite machine?

I think this question is same as asking why do you need interpreter in the first place, but my question actually came from this specific scenario of Emacs like editors. So I would like to understand from both perspectives.
