Add video url to power bi

Hi all,

I have a table with video URL's.

Is there a way to add them to my report and play it when I select an URL?

(below is an example of a few URL's).

Thanks for your advise,

John

If you set the data category of the column to web url it should work.

Thanks for your replly, this was not so difficult😊

 

Maybe you can give me some guidance with the following as well.

The end users do now see the the full name of the URL, which is not so nice.

Is there a way to change the names of the url's to 'video link'? 

Again thanks for your help!

You can display your links as icons instead, by using the toggle in the Values section of the table format options.

Add hyperlinks (URLs) to a table or matrix - Power BI | Microsoft Docs

 

Or you can convert an existing text column to become your hyperlinks.
