Video Embed

Rather than upload video files directly to the CMS, it is recommended you upload them to YouTube, Vimeo or MediaSite. They host the video and make it easy to embed the video on your webpage. 

Add a Video

  1. Click the Edit button for the region where you want the video. See Editing a page for more information.

  2. Put your cursor where you want the video (usually on its own line).

  3. Click the Insert Snippet icon. It is on the second row of the toolbar, second icon from the right.
