Embedding Video Tips

Basics of Embed Code, and the Top Three Issues People Encounter

I made a little video that attempts to explain why you might care about embed code. I then address the top three reasons people contact us for embed code help.

The top problems are:

  1. The code is displayed to viewers (instead of the video)
  2. Video is way too big for blog or website
  3. Code doesn’t work, or isn’t accepted by html tool

I welcome feedback on the video, especially as I plan to create a three-part series on embed code. This would be the “Basics” video. Do you like the live intro or should I just cut straight to the screencast? Anything you want me to cover in the next videos?

Don’t forget you can click the Full Screen button to watch the video at it’s original size. (I also made a low-res version that is a faster download.)
