Hi Tom,

you need to specify the correct URL, that's probably the reason for the YouTube video not showing correctly.

Go To the YouTube page showing your video, click "share", click "embed". Now copy that part of the URL where it says "scr=". It typically starts with "//www.". Coyp just that URL and add http. Paste that into App Studio.

Example:
The share embed says:
"<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/aqwvwyTsd8I?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>"

Put into App Studio
"http://www.youtube.com/embed/aqwvwyTsd8I?rel=0"

Does that work?

Thanks
Matthias
