How to embed a Vimeo or YouTube video

While it is not possible to upload a video to your Fotomerchant account, you will be able to embed a video from a third party provider such as YouTube or Vimeo into a Web Page.

A video from a third party can be embedded in two different ways into the mobile friendly web editor (the one with the grey + bar). The video can be inserted by pasting the URL of the video into the video block of the web page. Alternatively a video can be embedded by inserting the embed code of the video into the HTML of a webpage.

Inserting a third party Video into a Video Block

1. Navigate to the Website > Pages area of your Fotomerchant account.
