Hello,

Is your HTML contained within quotation marks?

No, I don't wrap it in quotes.  It comes from my source as a text HTML fragment.  Here is a screenshot of a single record in the table visual (interpreted as text) and the HTML Viewer visual (interpreted as HTML):

Here is a screenshot of my authoring experience in the PBI Desktop using an embedded iframe approach for a YouTube video.  Note that I don't see the content in the HTML Viewer when using iframes:

Finally, after I have published the .pbix file up to the service, I see my expected result for the iframe content:

Could you share how to do this? I have an trouble with black screen when I publish. Is there any setting about that?

Are there any steps for troubleshooting the black screen while displaying the embedded YouTube video on the Power BI report? 

Below is the snippet of the issue that I am facing.

@Anonymous Were you able to solve this issue? I'm also facing the same black screen

@Anonymous Unfortunately I haven't been able to resolve this issue. I came across this when I was playing around with this tool. But somehow I lost track of this issue. Would love to know if anybody else has found a workaround to resolve this issue.

Hi, 

 

Do you mind sharing your Model, I have been trying to do this but it was not working for me. I just show a black screen.

I get the same result when trying to embed the iframe from youtube. Any troubleshooting help would be great!

Hi @Guillaume_R,

I got the "HTML Viewer" custom visual to successfully embed an iframe of a youtube video as desired.  However, the embedded content is not displayed while I'm authoring the report in the PBIDesktop.  Once I publish the report to the service, the embedded video is displayed as expected.

Did you try to publish your report?

One alternative might be to embed the web content in a Dashboard using the service as opposed to embedding it in the report.

Hi @Guillaume_R,

 

Where is your HTML content stored, in Excel files, or from Web site? Could you be more precisely with importing HTML content in your scenario?

 

In addition, you should be able to follow steps in this article to use the HTML Viewer custom visual, or try the sample report there to see how to utilize this visual. Smiley Happy
