Now Embed Email Videos with YouTube URL

Jan 31 2011, 04:35 PM by

YouTube recently changed their embedding procedures to allow different types of embeddable video. That may sound as confusing to you as it does to me. That being the case, we've adjusted our own video embedding process. Now, you don't even have to worry about the embed code. All you have to do is copy and paste the URL.

Adding a video to your email is easy. You can upload it to your Video Gallery first, if you'd like. Do that by clicking on the Video Gallery link on the Emails tab. Paste the video URL into the box.

 
You can also add a video straight from the email builder. Select the box you want to add the video to. You will see the Insert Additional Elements menu appear on the left of the builder. Select Video and paste the video URL into the box provided.
 

 
We've had many great posts on video in the past. More recently, Hal's blog discussed marketing video email to the Apple iCrowd. Paul and I also ran a series on creating great video emails. Check out all 4 parts of our Making Great Email Videos series.
