What does the Embedded Media box do?
This box allows you to embed videos from...wherever!
As long as you have the embed code, you can add the video. :)
Or add your own!
If you have videos/tutorials you've created, embed them!
You can't upload videos directly into Libguides.
You'll need to upload them to a streaming media server at your library/institution or a service like those mentioned above before embedding them.
How do I use it?
Copy the embed code from:
- For videos: YouTube, Screencast, Vimeo,...wherever you found the video.
For example, in YouTube, the embed code is below the video (the Share button).
It may be in a different place on different sites.
- For widgets: the vendor/website will usually provide the code you need. (Also check out our Creating Search Boxes guide and/or Library Catalog Searches guide. ;)
On your guide, click Add New Box, choose Select the Content Box Type > Multimedia Boxes > Embedded Media & Widgets.
Give it a name and click Create Box.
Click Embed Media / Widget Code at the bottom of the box.
Paste the embed code in the Embed Code box.
Click Embed it.
