Embed Videos into Your Site

Last Updated on Mar 28, 2013
You can always upload videos into a Gallery page with just a few clicks. You can upload one from your computer, Vimeo, or Youtube. Just create a new Gallery page. This works great for videos that relate to a series of images or for a series of videos.

Sometimes, our users require more control over how a video looks and plays on their site. In cases like these, we recommend a more customized method for embedding videos that are hosted on video hosting sites such as Vimeo or Youtube.

As with most video hosting sites, users can generate embed codes.
This code can be copied into your Virb site.
 

For Vimeo videos:

1. Go to the Vimeo video you would like to embed and click on the 'Share' button.
