How to embed a Video on Demand into your own website

You can embed videos from your Yondo Video On Demand Library, into your own personal website and charge customers for them, by using our 'Get Embed Code'  function. 

How to Add a Video Player into Your Website:

First, in your Yondo Dashboard go to the Video On Demand tab. 

Here, click on the action button (3 dots) on a video you would like to add to your site and select 'Get an embed code'. 

Next, copy the HTML code for the video

Then, go into your webpage editor depending on the service you use. For this example we will use WordPress.

Important Note*** If you are using WordPress on a free account, you will not be able to embed a video into your page. WordPress will only run foreign HTML code if you have a paid self-hosted account. 

Add a new element that can read HTML code. These elements can be Posts, Pages, Widgets, or a number of other options depending on how you would like to display the Video.   

Information about HTTPS websites*** If your website uses HTTPS (SSL) and you are using an alias domain for your Yondo website, you must substitute the alias domain in the embed code with your Yondo subdomain. For example, my Yondo alias as http://store.mycompany.com, then I must find and replace this text in the embed code with https://mycompany.yondo.com. This is because only secure embed codes will be loaded on a secure site.

Paste your HTML code into the element and update your website.  

Your video will now be on your website

Video's On Your Website:

If your video has a price and a customer clicks on the video player on your WordPress page, they will be prompted to either rent or subscribe to your video, depending on how you are selling your videos. 

If you have a preview video associated with your video, they will be able to watch the preview before being prompted to make a purchase.  

If your video is available for free, customers will be able to view your video at any time on your WordPress website. 

Our integration team can also do this and other integration tasks for you for a nominal fee. Contact our support team for pricing at support@yondo.com
