Embed or link in quizzes

Community Novice

I thought I had found a work-around, but the videos corrupt...help.

I need to embed videos and/or clips into quizzes for my students. I was copying the links from 'pages' and pasting them into quiz instructions - which worked for a while - but now those videos links have been corrupting. 

Does anyone know a better way?  The embed feature is NOT available in quizzes.  HOW I WISH IT WAS!
