Inserting Videos

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.

Inserting a Video

  1. Head to the video you want to insert
  2. Copy the URL from your browser
  3. Click the Video icon in HelpDocs
  4. Paste in the URL
  5. Click Embed

Inserting a Video with an Embed code

We might find it difficult to locate your video. In this case, you'll need to find the embed code for your video.

  1. Head to the video you want to insert
  2. Under the video, you should see a button called Share or Embed
  3. Copy the Embed code which should start with <iframe>
  4. Paste the code into the box under HTML Snippet
  5. Click Insert HTML

Inserting Wistia Videos

Inserting a Wistia video? You'll need to use the fallback code, not the standard embed code.

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>
