When forking this (very nice ) project, the video does not load… I experimented a bit, an it seems there is a problem with the “crossorigin=anonymous” . Removing this makes the video load, but the rotating globe still does not work
hi @martinyt , it looks like the notebook author (Jeremy) is hosting the video file on an AWS bucket blocking anything that is not allowed by its CORS policy, I guess only Observable employees?
you could host the video on another server, here is a test using imgur
Hey! Thanks a lot. You are right. now it works.
I am actually hosting this video on a web-server, but I still could not get it loading on obserable… I guess that has something to do with the settings on my web-server? I would like to replace the video with my own, so if you have any tips on how to set up a server for sharing videos this way - I would appreciate it
Do you know if it is possible to file-attach a .mp4 file? I can not find an example of this at File Attachments / Observable / Observable or any other place. Seems that fileAttachent does not have a video function, or?
Related: you might be interested by videoInput in Media Input / Dennis Heihoff / Observable : it allows to specify an URL, and returns a Video element. You can provide it a “real” URL, upload a video, or reference a FileAttachment("…").url()
