Inserting Video & Other Media ID: EBT-EDIT-VID

In this lesson you will learn how to insert (or embed) video and other media into a Marketpath CMS HTML editor content area. There are two ways to embed media - by URL and by pasting the embed code.

To embed media, place the cursor where you want the embed item to appear and click the Embed icon toolbar-button-embed on the toolbar. This will open the Media Embed dialog (Fig. 1).

You can provide a URL for the media and if the integrated embed tool recognizes the source it will automatically create the embed code for you. YouTube is one of the recognized sources. Pasting a YouTube video link into the URL field will automatically create the code (Fig. 2).
