    What error you are getting? What steps you are trying to do?

    Please see Media and Adding/Editing.

    Are you adding it to the Extra field? How is your card template for the Front and Back card?

    If the video is only showed as a link (its title), try clicking on it. Does the video open/play when you click on it?

    How did you install anki?

    Try installing the latest version:

    1. Backup your collection (your Anki directory on your local computer), see Managing Files and Your Collection
    2. drag the old file to the trash
    3. install the latest Anki version from by opening the .dmg and dragging the icon to your Applications folder

    If you added the Extra field yourself, please click on Cards... and make sure you've added extra to the front or back template.
