Hi @djohn98390536, To display a video from the DAM in AEM, it is recommended to use the HTML5 video element. This approach ensures that the video is served securely and follows best practices for web development.

Here's an example of how you can use the HTML5 video element to display a video from AEM DAM:

<video width="100%" height="100%" controls>
    <source src="${config.videoUrl @ context = 'uri'}" type="video/mp4">
        <!-- Fallback content for browsers that don't support HTML5 video -->
        Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

Try by adding a context in your HTL code, something like below:

<iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="${config.videoUrl @ context='html'}" ></iframe>

If that not helps, please post what are you seeing in the browser console.

@djohn98390536 iframe works for YouTube videos where players for video gets inject by YouTube runtime along with responsive settings.

 

But in case of aem video, it's just a video file without any player attached to it. So you need to use any video player plugin and use this video url as source, ex html5 player or dynamic video component if you use Dynamic Media/Scene7.
