Video: YouTube or Vimeo

The Video content type embeds a YouTube or Vimeo video on your website in different ways.

Important Information

This new content type supports both YouTube and Vimeo URLs and should work regardless of what URL (from the address bar, or the 'share' one) is put in. Videos should always show in preview, but there are things that can go wrong beyond the URL input. If you find your video is not displaying properly, make sure permissions allow for this through the hosting service. As always, contact Web Support with any questions!
