How can I insert images or videos in Disqus?

Susendeep Dutta August 23, 2011

For asking some questions or answering, it becomes helpful to accompany it with some images or videos.

So how can I insert images and videos in MakeUseOf Answer’s question section and in comments section, i.e. Disqus? Any online method to embed images and videos without signing up on that site? As sharing link is very common.

I have tried to upload some images from my PC in Disqus, but it shows up error.How can I troubleshoot this?

      Nice try. I'm rather certain that Disqus has XSS attacks in mind. Even if that was allowed, it would be far more effective to inject an IFrame playing your stupid video in a descrete fashion (which it wouldn't, autoplay isn't enabled), not where they obviously know where the sound is coming from.

        So embed code is not supported in Disqus?

          Only certain tags are. For instance, I can bold my text, but I can't use Javascript.

          alert('Hello World!');

    Thanks Jeffery. So, Sunsandeep, any error you are getting is because the file is likely not in a format acceptable on the internet - like a .bmp screenshot or something?

    To insert an external image do the following:

    <img src="" />

    Replace "" with the URL and path to the image.

    It's not actually going to show you the image here, since I've had to escape the string so it didn't implement the code, however the image would appear below at the bottom of this message as a thumbnail. Example: 

     If the image is on your hard drive, just click on the "image" icon in the bottom left (go to make a comment and you'll see it)

    For YouTube videos, simply enter the link.

    Read more about adding images and videos at the Disqus Documentation.
