Video embedding in Portfolio

I'd like to suggest a new feature. How about if we were able to embed YouTube/Vimeo videos directly into our Portfolio items?


People who work with video (editors, colorists etc) would appreciate this feature, since filling the portfolio description with links doesn't look that good.

Agreed 100% If the embedded video could replace the invasive thumnail image, I'm sure it would lighten the bandwidth load on Upwork's servers.

It's really a shame when you have to point to a website off UpWork (like YouTube) to promote your videos.


It may be in UpWork's best interest to provide that option. Or work out a way for it to be attractive still for Video Editors to showcase their work in their profile in another way.

Any news on this? Why take people away from people's portfolios?

Well, it's 2017 and I've just spent the last hour trying to find out why my showreel link won't play without leaving Upwork. I'm guesiing that the Upwork Gods didn't deem this to be important enough?
