Embedding Brightcove Videos

The university now uses Brightcove for live and on-demand streaming video captured by Media Technology Services (MTS).

If you use MTS to capture an event for on-demand viewing, they will provide you with the information needed to embed the video on your website.

There are two ways to embed your video.

Using the Pre-Formatted CMS Field in the Zeta Inner Page Template

If you would like your video to appear at the top or bottom of your page, you simply need to enter the Video ID # provided by MTS in the Brightcove Video field near the bottom of your CMS page, and select Top or Bottom for the position. A video placed at the Top will appear above any text you enter in the Main Content Area editor. A video placed at the Bottom will appear below any text you enter in the Main Content Area editor.

Manually Adding the Embed Code

If you would like your video to appear between paragraphs of text on your page, or if your website is not in the zeta templates, you will need to add the embed code using the HTML button in the CMS toolbar.

  1. Open the text file sent by MTS. Please note that the height and width settings in the code display a video that fills the Main Content Area of the zeta template (inner page). If your website is in a different template, you may need to adjust the height and width settings.
  2. Copy the code.
  3. In the CMS, edit the page where you would like to embed the video.
  4. Click the HTML button in the toolbar and paste the code between the paragraphs of text.
  5. Click Update, and Submit the page.
