Embedding Videos in Breeze Emails

While Breeze does not currently have a way to embed videos (e.g. from YouTube or Vimeo) into a Breeze email using the source code, we do have an option that gets you close to this! 

Our end result will be a screenshot of the video with a hyperlink to the video source. Here's how to do this:

  1. Take a screenshot of the video page by using Windows Snip & Sketch, Screenshot Capture for Mac, or any other screenshot tools (see the screenshot example below):Video_Screenshot.png
  2. Copy the hyperlink for the video (see the example below). The embed code is unnecessary (and won't work properly) in this scenario: Link.png
  3. Go back to Breeze and choose your audience to email.
  4. In the Compose Email screen, click on the 3 dots and then the "Upload" icon: 3_Dots.png
  5.  Choose the video screenshot from Step 1 and upload to the email.
  6. Click once on the video image, and then click the "Insert/edit link" button.
  7. Paste the link of the video URL that was copied in Step 2 and select "New Window" in the "Target" field: Link_Insert.png
  8. Click "Ok" and then "Send"!
  9. When the email is opened, simply clicking on the image will open a new window where the video can be played! Play.png
