How to Add a Video to a Project
In this tutorial you will learn how to add a video to your project.
1. Adding a Placeholder for Your Video
Begin by adding an image element. Here you will add an image that the reader will click on to launch the video. To add the element go to 'Elements' in the left sidebar. Open the 'Media' drop list by clicking on it. Inside the options you will see the 'Image' element. Drag and drop it into the project.
2. Add Your Image
There are a number of different ways to add an image. Click on the 'M' in the tool bar of the image element or select the Media Manager from the left sidebar. Inside of the Media Manager you can search for images, add them via url or upload your own. With a video it is recommended that you take a screenshot of the video from YouTube. This way the reader will know that there is a video linked to the image. Alternatively, you can add a button image with the words 'Watch' or 'Play Video'. Be creative! The goal here is to make it clear to the reader that they can click something to watch a video. In this tutorial I have added a screenshot of a YouTube video to 'My Images' gallery by uploading an image from my local hard drive.
3. Position the Image
4. Activate the Link Container
To activate the link container you first need to activate the image container. This is done by clicking on the image. This will open the image container toolbar. From the options select the link option. Once you click on it the link container will become active. You will know that the correct container is active when you see the word 'Link' in the upper left corner of the toolbar. Next, click on the pencil icon.
5. Adding the Video URL
6. Getting the YouTube URL
8. Creating the PDF
9. Playing the Video
When you click on the active link field it will open the video in full screen. Click on the play button to watch the video. Click HERE to see a copy of the PDF with video.
