  1. Wow. You’re the best.
    I was looking through multiple websites trying to figure out if this was possible.
    I really thank you for this. I didn’t think Google Drive was capable of this feature; I thought everything redirected to that “standard website” where you can watch or download.
    My only problem is sometimes Google Drive will tend to make previously watchable videos “unwatchable” by putting a slash (/) on their play button. I don’t know why they do that, but it is what it is.
    Now I can use this to host my video courses and embed them.
    Thanks again.

  2. This sounds great but I don’t get the drop down menu with embed or anything else, only a ‘details’ button with info about the file. Help!!

  3. Hey is there an attribute to mute? My video isn’t autoplaying from google drive and I think its because of the browser stops to autoplaying audio files. Very new to HTML, basically jumping between video guides to embed a video to autoplay into a squarespace website. Thanks,

  4. Thank You for the guide! After following it the user can open the original file with a top right button “open in new window”. Is there an option to disable this button, so that no one can download or reshare the original file?

  5. Hello, I have a series of videos hosted on Google Drive that I want to embed in a WordPress page.
    When I do it I encounter two problems, one (the most uncomfortable) is that when I started the playback does it at 480p, is there any way to indicate that the video is played in its original size (720p or 1080p)?
    The second problem (not so serious) is that I can not find a way to prevent the download option is enabled by default.
    I appreciate this publication and the help you can give me.
    Thank you!
