How to Add a Video to Your Post using the CMS Video Plugin

You can add videos directly to your post using three main methods. Click on the relevant option for further details.

 

Add a Video using the Selected Tab

To add a Video form the Plugin's Selected tab, perform the following steps:

  1. Go to the CMS Video Plugin. After entering your post's title and body text, the Plugin will present you with relevant videos.



  2. Choose one or more videos from the Discover tab by selecting the corresponding check boxes. The selected videos are added to the 'Selected' tab.

  3. Click on the 'Selected' tab. The selected tab is displayed including the posting pane.

  4. Optional: Selecting the 'Player' field allows you to select a player for your embed from the available players under your selected company. For further details, please see How to change a Player in the CMS Video Plugin

  5. Optional: Selecting the 'Playlist override' field allows you to override any associated playlist linked to the selected player.

    Note: If the player has no playlists the override can be used to assign a new playlist for this specific embed.

    Note: Selecting 'none' does not remove any previously assigned playlists from the player. This only implies that no playlist override is applied.


  6. Click on one of the following options:
    • ADD TO POST - Your selected video/s are added to your post.
      Note: This option is not available in the Chrome Extension version of the Video Plugin.

    • COPY TAG - Your selected video/s Player tag (embed code) is copied to your clipboard.
