Add and edit a video item in a newsletter

One of the items in the Campaign Editor that you can use in designing your email marketing campaigns is a video. You can add a video item in your newsletter to allow your subscribers to navigate to the video content easily, especially if they prefer watching over reading content.

After adding a layout, you can add a video item to your design.

To add a video item:

  1. In the editor’s left pane, click the Items tab.
  2. Drag and drop the Video item to an empty container in the editing area.
  3. Click the item to display the Video settings in the editor’s right pane. You can set the following:
    • Background Color: select the background color of the video. The default color is transparent.
    • Video Url: enter the URL of the video you want to link and click Apply_videourl_icon.png to apply the video URL.
      Note:  The video item may NOT work if you've entered a short URL for the video instead of a full link or if you haven't set the video to Public.
    • Padding: enter the height or use the up and down arrows to edit the height of the video area.
    • Add Image: click to browse and select a custom cover image for the video. The image is added to the container when successfully uploaded. 
    • Change Image: select a new image to replace the current one.
    • Remove Image: click to delete the video’s cover image.
    • Show Play icon: select to display a play icon on your video.

Note: When subscribers click the cover image or the play icon, the video does not start playing but instead redirects to the specified video URL.
