Paper API - video not showing

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I am able to create new paper documents using the api, however when I post markdown - nothing I try is able to include video's in the post - instead I get just the text and a link to the video - no video showing.

I try sending the same markdown as is exported and it still does not work - for instance neither of these forms work:

The Dropbox Paper API doesn't offer the ability to programmatically embed media like that unfortunately. When uploading using /2/paper/docs/create or /2/paper/docs/update you'll just get the text, as mentioned. I'll pass this along as a feature request.
