Embedding Videos

Embedding a video from YouTube or Vimeo is a quick and easy way to add useful content to any page of your site, using the Text Area snippet.  

Select a video to share, and follow these steps depending on which site you are using.

 

Get the Embed Code

On YouTube, click Share under the video, and then click Embed. Copy the text that starts with "<iframe" in the box to your clipboard.
