How to enable and view external iframe in Sharepoint

Sharepoint enables a user to add and customize web parts to build your Sharepoint page. This feature permits content from external webpages that allow embedding (like DatabeatOMNI or Youtube) to be displayed in an iframe.

Embed in Sharepoint

  • Copy the link you want to embed in Sharepoint. 
  • Enable Edit mode on your Sharepoint page.

Check out Troubleshooting if you're unable to play or view the embedded link.


Here are the most common reasons why the embedding may not work.  

  • Embed code must be iframe-based. Embed code that uses <script> tags is not supported. 
  • Only secure web sites (HTTPS) can be embedded.
  • Not all websites allow embedding. Check availability with the website.
  • Site administrators can set permissions to control whether a user can embed content from external sources. These permissions can restricted by an administrator. 

View Site Settings - Site Collection Administration - HTML Field Security or contact your Sharepoint site administrator to allow contributors to insert iframe from a domain.
