Embedding Instagram Video Into Instructable Answered

I was creating an instructable yesterday for the newest "Burning Questions" contest, which encourages submission via instagram video and vine. The issue is, these video hosts are not supported by instructables' video embed function. 

When attempting to enter the instagram embed code (OSX, both Chrome and Safari), the iframe placeholder will appear temporarily, but will disappear when the instructable is saved or when the user attempts to publish. Only when uploading the video to an approved host was I able to post a video sourced from instagram.

Here's a tutorial for embedding Instagram videos: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Embed-Instagram-Video/

If this doesn't work for you please try clearing your browsers cache and refreshing the page. Also, make sure you don't have any script blocking add-ons (like AdBlock, GreaseMonkey, or LastPass) that will prevent the page from loading correctly.

These instructions are out of date. Instagram no longer uses that iframe, and new videos are not working.
