You can embed videos to any Pop-up template to deliver more information to your end users. The video can be embedded in the description section. For more information on Whatfix Pop-up templates see, Choosing the Pop-up template.

Adding video embed code in a Pop-up is a 2-step process.

Step 1: Getting the video embed code
Step 2: Inserting the video embed code in the Pop-up

Use the following steps to add a Dropbox video to a Pop-up,

Step 1: Getting the video embed code

Note

Dropbox does not have an in-built embed option to insert videos. However, we can manually create one.

  1. Go to the location where the video file is located in your Dropbox account.
  2. Hover your the cursor over the video and then click the Share button.
    share_button_dropbox_video_link
  3. In the pop-up that appears, click the Copy link button at the bottom.
    dropbox_video_copy_link
  4. Paste the copied link in a text editor.
    dropbox_link_added_raw
  5. Remove any parameters after the question mark and replace it with raw=1.
    dropbox_link_unedited
  6. Replace video_link with the edited link in the following code snippet to get the embed iframe link.
<iframe src="video_link" height="480px" width="640px" allowfullscreen></iframe>
