Inserting Videos

Updated 22 days ago ​by Jarratt Isted

Adding videos to your docs can make them more engaging. With HelpDocs, you can quickly insert a video by grabbing its URL or embed code and pasting it into the editor.

If you're inserting a YouTube, Vimeo, or ilos video, you can insert the URL directly. 
Inserting a Wistia video? You'll need to use the fallback code, not the standard embed code.
  1. Copy the URL/embed code
  2. Click Video in the text editor


  3. Paste it into the text area and click Insert
  4. Hit Save

Inserting Wistia Videos

If you're looking to embed a Wistia video on HelpDocs, you'll need to do things a little differently. The code you receive should look like this:

<iframe src="//fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/avk9twrrbn" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" class="wistia_embed" name="wistia_embed" allowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" webkitallowfullscreen="" oallowfullscreen="" msallowfullscreen="" width="620" height="349"></iframe>
<script src="//fast.wistia.net/assets/external/E-v1.js" async=""></script>
  1. Select Inline Embed
  2. Choose the Fallback Embed Type


  3. Select Video in the HelpDocs toolbar and paste in the code
