Uploading Videos to Your Website

content line

Video content matters. All the research shows that a video on a website creates engagement and communicates information to the website visitor in a more effective way than pages of written copy.

If you have created a video that you want to use on your website, you will probably have done the easy job of uploading it to one of the main video sharing websites like Youtube or Vimeo. Both of these sites give you the ability to ‘embed’ a video on a web page. On the assumption that the video is not set as private, doing this can be straightforward depending on the way the website has been built and the platform used to build it. 

Just like adding a photo to a content area on your website, the size of the area needed to house the video may mean that existing content like text and images may display differently once you add a video. The developers at Devmac will make the appropriate changes to the web page to ensure that when the embedded video is added, it fits within the existing content.

The web developers at Devmac can also help you create a password-protected area in the website for when your video is set to private in Vimeo or Youtube. They can also force it to stream without auto-playing someone else’s video when yours has completed.
