So you found or created a great video and want to use it on your page.
Good news! You don't have to download it or have the actual video file, you can simply embed the content directly to your page using the i-frame embed link.
With an embed link, a piece of the other website content is shown on your own page, without moving the content itself.
*We recommend to use Google Chrome to ensure an optimal experience when using AppicalNow.
So how do you embed a video?
First - getting your video:
Step 1. Go to the video page you would like to use, and click 'share'.
Step 2. In the sharing menu that opens, choose 'Embed'.
Step 3. Click on 'Copy' to copy the full embed code into your clipboard.
Notice the embed options!
Un-checking the first box will make sure your video ends without leading to other videos or showing other unrelated video suggestions.
Now, planting the video in your page!
Step 1. Go to the chapter to which you want to add the video.
Step 2. Choose ‘Embed’ from the pages menu on the left, and click ‘Add page’ on the button located in the bottom right corner.
Step 3. Select the desired language and give your page a title.
Step 4. In the text field, fill in the text you wish to accompany the embedded content. Let the viewer know what they are about to see!
Step 5. Paste the embed code (that you copied from YouTube) in the text field that show 'Paste your code here'.
Ta-da! your embed page is ready to roll!
