It appears that the Story Map Series only allows an iframe for inserting videos. Although, I cannot use YouTube or other hosting services so the link is directly to the video instead of a video host. I would like to simply embed HTML5 instead, which I attempted below.

First I created the html file containing this:

<video controls="controls">
    <source src="url_to_my_video.mp4" type="video/mp4">

Then I included the following iframe in the story map.

<iframe src="url_to_my_file.html" />

The video never appeared. Any ideas?
