Embedding a Youtube Short into a Retool App

Hey Retool Community -

Just wanted to share a quick tip if you want to embed a Youtube Short into a Retool App using the Video component.

Unlike other Youtube URLs, Youtube Shorts will not load up in a Video component. They will be of the following format: https://www.youtube.com/shorts/<IDENTIFIER STRING>

If you replace shorts with embed in the URL, the Short will load without any issues in the Video component.
https://www.youtube.com/embed/<IDENTIFIER STRING>
