VIU Campus


One way you can share your media with other users is by embedding it directly into an external web page or site. Doing so will allow users to be able to view the media without navigating away to another page. You can embed VIUTube media into a VIULearn course, a Drupal website, or another website by grabbing the Embed code.

Please note that if you embed a VIUTube video into a public website, anyone that finds and has access to that website will be able to view your media.

Find Your VIUTube Embed Code

  1. Navigate to VIUTube and click the Manage Media button.

  2. Hover over the media you wish to share and select More...

  3. Click the Links tab. 

  4. Copy the embed code by clicking the Copy Embed Code button. 

  5. Paste the embed code into the HTML editor of the site you want to add your video to. 

Embed VIUTube Media into a VIUBlogs Post or Page

To embed a VIUTube video in your VIUBlogs site,  you will actually use the Direct Link instead of the Embed code. You can find the Direct Link on the same tab as the embed code.  

  1. From your VIUBlog site Dashboard, click either Posts or Pages from the navigation sidebar (depending on where you would like to add the VIUTube media to).

  2. Click on the Post or Page you wish to edit. Or click the Add New button to create a new Post or Page. 

  3. Click the Add Block icon (+ icon) or click into an existing empty block. 

  4. Paste your Direct Link into the block. VIUBlogs will recognize automatically that this link is from VIUTube and embed your video.
