Enabling your embedded videos to play on your site

In effect, we give permission for our explainer videos to play from your website, learning management system or intranet. To do this, we need to know what the domain name of your site is. It’s always a good idea to test this first. Send us your domain name name, and we’ll allow our training videos to play and we’ll send you an embed code to test that everything’s working as it should be.

Watch this video to see how this works.

Add your domain here

Most domains are made up of three main parts:

Protocol Domain Path
https:// mybusiness.com /elearning

It’s the domain name that we need to test.

In this example it would be: mybusiness.com

On Sharepoint it would be something like: mybusiness.sharepoint.com

Put the domain name in the box below and hit Submit.

Embedding a video on a web page (WordPress)

There are lots of different ways to create web pages, but they all use some sort of HTML text editor. This examples shows how you copy and paste an embed code into a web page. The example we use is with WordPress, but the process is similar for web site creation tools, intranets and Learning Management Systems.

Make sure you have added your domain name (see above), then you can use the embed codes below to embed a short video.

Embedding videos in an authoring tool (Storyline)

Embedding a video in an authoring tool generally means copying the embed code and pasting it into a embed code box. Be sure that if you are using one of our commercial videos (i.e. not one of our demonstration ones), and you’ll also need to test in in a web environment.

Advantages of embedding videos (Captions)

One advantage of using embedded videos is that they all come with captions in English ready to go (you can also add captions in foreign languages). Captions can help people with hearing loss, people whose first language isn’t English and also anyone who doesn’t have access to audio.

Advantages of embedding videos (Adaptive streaming)

Adaptive streaming means that no matter the device the video is being watched on, or the type and quality of connection, the best size video is delivered.
