Before You Begin
Upload Your Video
If the video you desire to show isn't already on YouTube or a similar site (that hosts the video and provides sharing code), you'll need to upload it yourself. This will require an account for the site of your choice, which you'll need to obtain for yourself or your organization (dept, program, lab, etc) if you don't already have one.
Embed the Code
Find and Copy
Once your video is on the site (using YouTube as an example):
- Go to the video's page.
- Look for an Embed button/link that reveals the HTML snippet and click it.
- Copy the code that is provided.
This requires editing the HTML source on your page. Once you are on the edit screen of your page:
- Click one of the following:
- The "HTML" button on the visual editor's toolbar.
- The "Edit without visual editor" link below the Body Text field.
Save and Test
You won't be able to see the end result until you save and view the page. From that point, you can see what adjustments, if any, you need to make to your code or page layout. If you want to experiment with a page that's currently published, you may want to check out a working copy of the page. If your video does not play at all, please contact the OIS Web Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 966-3519 for assistance.
