GDPR compliant embed elements (video, maps, etc)

Youtube and Vimeo will place cookies if embedded, so it is not possible being GDPR compliant when using webflow's embedded video element or videos in rich texts & CMS rich texts. The same applies to maps and other embed elements.



Add functionality to only insert cookie placing elements into the DOM if cookies were accepted.

    We run a weblog and embed videos via the richtext element Now there is no possibility to select the privacy mode here, so that we can get a clean solution with our cookie tool (

    After the latest ruling of the EUGH (Fashion ID ruling) this feature is really important. Please Webflow team, this can't be that hard to change!

    It's not just video elements, there are problems with embedding Google Maps and other third party services too...
