When possible we always recommend uploading to Spotlightr as opposed to using our Hybrid Hosting feature. This way we can completely control performance of your video.

To embed a video on your site, just grab the embed code for desired video from Spotlightr interface.

To get to the embed code, click on the PUBLISH button on the top right corner and then you will see your publishing options.

The first tab will be your embed code. Simply click the copy icon in the embed tab and paste that code into your page where it accepts HTML.

Copy Embed Code

Here is an example of embedding a video on a WordPress site. Go to your Post or Page, and then add the embed code.

Keep in mind you need to be sure you are using the Code Editor, not the Visual Editor:

That's it. The video is now embedded to your page..

Some third-party platforms and page builders strip out portions of our original embed code for one reason or another. If that is the case and you are experiencing issues with placing the original code, you might want to try the Fallback Embed code.

Here are some additional settings that you can apply to your video. Be sure to configure these options first and then copy the embed code.

Set optimized resolution - If you want your audience to be served a particular resolution by default, then enable this option and choose your resolution.

Custom Aspect Ratio & Orientation - Here you can change the aspect ratio, for example if you have a 4:3 video or a square 1:1 video. You can also change the orientation from Landscape to Portrait.

Custom Start/End Time - Here you will be able to choose when your video starts and ends. For example, start your video at the :20 second mark for everyone and automatically skip those first 20 seconds.

Anonymize viewing data - Enable if you don't want Spotlightr to collect any information at all about viewers, like their IP address for example.

Advanced code - Enable this if you want to use our Floating video feature or adjust the player size.

There are also other features that require the Advanced code. For more information we have an article dedicated to using the Advanced Embed code.
