Embedding videos

To embed a video on an external website you must first publish it to a public channel.

To create a public channel please contact the video coordinator for your faculty as only he/she can set a channel to be public.

After making the channel public you can go to the video in ‘My Media’ and open the video page by clicking on the title.

You can find the ‘Share’ tab below the video, please open this tab.

In the ‘Share’ options you can choose to place a link to the video (with optional set start and end position). This option will not show a preview or player of the video.

When you choose ‘Embed’ on the extra menu below ‘Share’ you get the option to show the video in a player on your website.

The options for ‘Embed’ again involve setting a start and end point for the video as well as a default ‘Player Size’ and the option to make the player change size according to the browser window with ‘Responsive Sizing’.

When you are ready setting up your choice please copy the text below the ‘Link to Media Page’ and ‘Embed’ tabs and copy this into your websites HTML code or in the ‘Text’ tab of your WordPress page.
