 Embed a Video (Embedded pages) –  Via Manage Your Pages

  • Before embedding a video, you will need to be sure you have an embed code from Youtube or Vimeo or the Video hosting site for your video.  Please note, this is not a URL or what shows in the browsers address bar.  The embed code is usually HTML or ‘code’ and will have various numbers, letters and characters. You will want to copy the embed code or have it handy for placement in your Redframe site video embed.  Below is an example from Youtube.com:
