Presently zora supports one media z-code per blog post. The reason for this is to make sure that we can communicate with search engines the main focus of your content. Take a look at any of your blog posts using the Schema Validator so you can see how Zora organizes your content. You can still embed videos and other types of content using the iframe or code editor. 

If you’re trying to use an mp4 link in the audio list it will not work and vice versus. i.e. you can't do [video buzzsprout=episode link]. This will cause iframe issues.  It’s also important to make sure you include a link the to the audio or video episode and NOT the channel or otherwise. Doing so will cause unexpected behavior.
