To add or embed a video in a press release, the video must be first added to youtube.com or vimeo.com. The resulting video link should be mentioned in the press release. The video will be then automatically embedded in the press release below the video link using auto-sensing technology. You are free to add the video version of the press release, product video, company video, or any other type of video.
Here are the instructions in more detail -
The video link should be in one of the following formats below-
where video_code is specific to your video.
Please note that no html tags should be used. Also, http:// should be used instead of https://
For proper press release formatting, the video link must appear after first 500 characters if there is no image in the press release, and after first 1000 characters if an image is added to the press release. Logos added through business profile are exempt from this condition.
The video link must be in the last line in any paragraph or be in a single line, again, for proper formatting.
If you see a big blank space below the video link instead of the video, then you may have an incorrect video link. You can test the video link simply by pasting it in your web browser.
The embedded video will be visible in preview mode during submission process. If you don't see the video in preview, you won't see it after the press release is published.
