Configuring HTML5 video player

I am just starting to get my system switched over to the new Chrome players as we remove the Raspberry Pi's in favor of Chrome Boxes.

I am needing a little help getting the HTML5 video working.

I have the videos saved on my Google Drive, which is where all of my Google Slaides & Sheets are stored as well.

When I try to enter the publicly shared link to this WebM video it fails the validation?

What am I missing?

Jacob,

In order to host a video or image through google drive, you will need a direct link to that item. The url will need to end in the extension (.mp4, .wmv, etc) of the file you want displayed.

So the links I get from Google Drive or Dropbox will not work?

Looks like I'm building my own server!!!

Blake, could you contact me directly. I am hoping to be giving a demonstration of Rise Vision to a state-level higher-ed tech convention in October and was hoping to maybe pick your brain for some demonstration material.
