Embed Video from YouTube, Vimeo, and Others

There are a few ways to add video to your site. First, you can upload video directly using our HD Video element, if you're a Pro or Business user. 
 
You can also share YouTube, Vimeo, and any other providers videos in two ways. 
 
Watch this How'd They Do That? or read the article that follows.

 
 
YouTube element
 
Our YouTube Video element allows you to share videos from, er, what's that place called? Oh yeah, YouTube! This element can be found under the Media section of Elements.
 
This element is one of two ways you can add a YouTube video to your site. The second (and more flexible) way is to use our Embed Code element, which we'll tackle next.
 
Drag the element to a page and click on it to bring up the toolbox. You need to enter the direct link to the YouTube video in the provided field.
 
 
To find the direct link, click the Share button beneath the YouTube video. And copy / paste from there.  No other link will work, so be sure to use the one found here. 
 
 
Once you add the link, the video should show up on your page in less that a minute. If it does not show up then you are not using the direct link—please double check that you are copying the proper link using the option noted above. 

Once the link is in place, you can determine the size of the video player using the Advanced option in the YouTube element's toolbox. 
 
If you feel at all limited by this element, you're also welcome to embed videos from YouTube using our Embed Code element. How so? 
 
 
Embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo, etc.
 
Our Pro elements are not the only way to add Video and Audio to your site. You can add multimedia content from Vimeo.comBlip.tvUstream.com (and many other providers) using our Embed Code element. 
 
The short How'd They Do That video below shows how to use our Embed Code element to quickly add a YouTube video to your site. 

 
Start by dragging the element to the page.
 
 
Then get the embed code for whatever you're looking to add to the site. This can usually be accessed via an embed or share button found on or near the content you're looking to share. In Vimeo this share button appears on the right side of the video. 
 
Once you have the embed code, click inside the Embed Code element, then select Edit Custom HTML to paste it in place. When you click outside of the element, your content should show up there. 
 
 
 
All Done!
