Supported Media Types

You can use URLs to all of the media types listed below inside the 'Media URL':

  1. Images 
    If your URL ends in jpg, gif, png or jpeg, it will be used as the source for an image tag. It should also work if there is a query string after the extension, perhaps specifying dynamic width and height values.

  2. Online Videos
    Use the URL for the page of the video for Vimeo, DailyMotion, Vine, and YouTube. Timeline honors Youtube start-at time parameters.

  3. Sound Cloud
    Use the URL for the SoundCloud clip page.

  4. Twitter 
    Use the Twitter embed code, or the URL of the tweet's page.

  5. Google Maps 
    Use the URL for the Google Maps page (unless you are using Streetview, which currently requires the embed URL found in the "Share" section). Coordinates, search results, placemarks and directions are all honored by Timeline. Supports roadmap, hybrid, satellite and terrain Google Maps, as well as directions, places, and Streetview maps.

  6. Google Plus 
    Use the URL for the Google Plus photo, found by right-clicking (or control-clicking) the image and selecting "Copy Image URL".

  7. Instagram  
    Use the URL for the Instagram photo's page. 

  8. Flickr 
    Use the URL for the Flickr photo's page. The shortened link provided in the share menu (e.g. will also work.

  11. Wikipedia 
    Use the URL of the Wikipedia article's page.

  12. Storify

  13. iframe 
    Instead of a URL, you can use <iframe> markup. This is a good general workaround to embedding media types that are not supported directly.

  14. Blockquote
    Instead of a URL, you can use <blockquote> tags around whatever text you want to quote.

  15. Embedly 
    If it doesn't recognize your media URL, it will try to use to get the best thing to include on your slide.
