How do I embed video? Which Vimeo or YouTube link should I use?

For both Youtube and Vimeo you want the embed link, which means using the embed links, not the sharing links, found on those sites.

First, here's the simple Markdown-inspired short code to embed video into your article directly:

^[yourVideoURLHere]

Second, here's where you grab the embed links:

For Youtube, you do NOT want the link provided in the "Share this video" section. The link you want is found in the Embed section. Copy just the url found in the source as seen in the screen shot below:


For Vimeo, you do NOT want the link found in the "Link" field. The link you want is found in the Embed section. Copy just the url found in the source as seen in the screen shot below:



You can embed video into a Type Engine article using the Markdown Helper seen below:

*Note: if the source is missing the "http:" to start, you will need to add that to the link that the helper generates.
