Engage more platform visitors by publishing videos:

To add variety to your media and help increase engagement of your uConnect platform, admin can upload videos to a resource description, community, blog, or page within your uConnect platform. 

uConnect's featured video content type allows users to publish videos from Candid Career, YouTube, Wistia, or Vimeo, by following the steps in our "Add a new video" article here. Our featured video content type allows you to store videos in a library or in widgets within community pages. If you want to embed a video outside of these options, or your video is hosted on a platform outside of Candid Career, YouTube, Wistia, or Vimeo, follow the steps below to learn about inserting video embed codes.

Insert video embed codes:

1. The 'Visual' tab of a description text box, featured below, is commonly used for adding content to a community, page, or resource in your backend. In order to embed a video, you'll need to switch over to the 'Text' tab, as highlighted in red.

2. Take the embed code/iframe tag of your video from the platform your video is currently hosted on (for example, Cincopa). The embed code will look similar to the example code below:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.cincopa.com/embed/ARH-FQpEXm0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> 

Once this is pasted into the "Text" section, you'll need to edit the code slightly to use a short-code, instead of the embed code that's pulled from the platform your video is hosted on.

3. To edit the format of the code above to an iframe short-code, delete the closing </iframe> tag and change the < and > signs to [ and ] :

[iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.cincopa.com/embed/ARH-FQpEXm0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen]

4. Next, make sure to save the page, resource, or community you've added the short-code to, ensuring your video is featured on the front-end of your uConnect platform!
