How do I add a YouTube or Vimeo video to my page?

Adding videos to your Splash page couldn't be easier! All you'll need to start is the video's URL from YouTube or Vimeo. 

Can you upload your video to Splash?

No, the video must be hosted somewhere else on the web. You'll merely be embedding the video onto your Splash page.

What if my video is not hosted on YouTube or Vimeo?

No worries! As long as you have the video's embed code, you'll be able to embed it using Splash's iframe element. The iframe element also gives you full control of the width and height of the video, which makes it an option even if you have a YouTube or Vimeo video.
