Using video in marketing channels is a smart way to connect with people. The Video block includes a hosted video option for YouTube, Vimeo, or other video-sharing websites.


How hosted video works

Hosted videos are videos that are uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, or other video-sharing websites. Video links are inserted into the design and direct users to a video-sharing website where the video plays. Copy the video link from the video-sharing site and paste it into the href field in the design.
