I would like to embed videos on articles. 

I read that is possible using HTML5.  I would really appreciate if someone can help me on how to so that. 

Many thanks.

Hi Esther,

You can upload videos to Vimeo or YouTube. These platforms typically give you an embed code. If it's YouTube, you can right click on a video and click 'Copy embed code'. Vimeo has something similar too. 

You can then use 'code view' when you're editing solution articles, and paste the code from YouTube or Vimeo right into your articles.

Let me know if you need more help with this :)

Hi Shankar, 

Could you confirm if this only works with YouTube and Vimeo embed codes or also with other video hosting providers - in particular TechSmith's Screencast?? Thanks in advance, Roberta

I think it should use with other video platforms as well. You job becomes easier if you use a CMS like WordPress to do that. I have been embedding videos on my sites without any trouble for so many years. It's very easy to do that. For reference you can check my recent site Being Nomadic as well.

To embed videos in articles, follow these steps:

  1. Find the video you want to embed on a video hosting platform like YouTube or Vimeo.
  2. Copy the embed code provided by the platform.
  3. In your article, switch to HTML editing mode or locate the section where you can add custom HTML code.
  4. Paste the copied embed code into the HTML editor at the desired position in your article.
  5. Save or publish your article.

Example of an embed code from YouTube:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VIDEO_ID" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Note: Replace "VIDEO_ID" in the code with the actual ID of the video you want to embed.
