Add a third-party video to a custom tab

Enhance your events by including videos that viewers can play at any time. You can include YouTube, Vimeo, or Brightcove videos. During the event, the videos display in tabs on the right side of the event window, next to the video stream or headshots. The videos play in the tab instead of in an overlay window.

Event window shows the event with a third-party video in a custom tab

Example Code

Use the following sample code to embed your video. Replace INSERT YOUR LINK HERE with the link found in the video player's embed code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body style="min-height: 405px;">
<iframe style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;border:none;" scrolling="no" width="640" height="360" src="INSERT YOUR LINK HERE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="">
</body>
</html>
