Video players can be incorporated into a Conductor website by embedding video from a host site into the editor for a page.

Unlike images and documents, which are uploaded into Conductor, video must be uploaded to another site and then embedded.

YouTube is a popular video host–it is familiar, free (for basic features), and tends to be easy to use. Vimeo is another comparable option.

Embedding a YouTube or Vimeo video

On the Editing Page:

  1. Place you cursor where you would like to embed a video
  2. Select the "Insert/Edit Media" button in the editor's toolbar

In the popover window:

  1. Paste the URL of the video into the "Source" field
  2. Select "Save."


  1. Paste the embed code into the "Paste your embed code below" field
  2. Select "Save."


Video Captions

Closed captions for videos are an important accessibility consideration and should be included with all video. YouTube can automatically generate captions, but they will likely require additional attention.
