Adding hosted video to your design


Using video in marketing channels is a smart way to connect with people. Modern Editor's video block includes a hosted video option for YouTube, Vimeo, or another video-sharing website.


How does hosted video work

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