Can I Embed a Video in Figma Prototype?

Last updated on September 29, 2022 @ 8:51 am

The answer to whether you can embed a video in a Figma prototype is a resounding yes! In fact, there are a couple of ways to go about doing it.

The first method is to use an online video hosting service like YouTube or Vimeo. All you need to do is grab the embed code for the video you want to use and paste it into the Figma prototype. Figma will automatically render the video for you.

PRO TIP: Warning:

Figma does not currently support video embedding in prototypes. This means that you will not be able to include videos in your Figma prototype. If you want to include videos in your prototype, you will need to use an external video hosting service and link to the video from your prototype.

The second method is to upload the video file directly into Figma. This is ideal for videos that are meant for internal use only and don’t need to be hosted on a third-party site.

To do this, simply drag and drop the video file into the Figma prototype. Again, Figma will take care of rendering the video for you.

So there you have it! You can easily embed videos in your Figma prototypes using either online video hosting services or by uploading the files directly into Figma.
