Embedding Videos

You can add videos from YouTube or Vimeo into your Aurora site. The process is the same for either site.

To do so:

  1. Copy the URL of the video
  2. Paste it into either the visual editor or the text editor. It does not matter which.
  3. Add an embed shortcode before it, and a /embed shortcode after it. For example:
  4. If you would like to fix a width, add this in your embed shortcode. The measurement is automatically taken in pixels, so if you type width="280" it means 280px. For example:

    Note that this acts as a maximum width — the video will never be wider but may shrink if the browser width is too narrow.

Uploading Videos

Alternately, you can upload a raw MP4 or OGG video file, and use the 'Add Media' button to add it to a page.

Warning: You only get so much space on an Aurora site, and videos can be quite large. You may want to reconsider adding long videos or HD videos.

Be sure to remove the width and height attributes to get a responsive video size.
