How to Insert and Attribute Videos and Other Media

All content management systems handle media differently. To ensure that we are providing our clients the information needed to properly insert media through their system, use the following directions when inserting media through the CMS system:

Insert Videos from YouTube or Vimeo

  • Search for videos on YouTube.com or Vimeo.com
  • Find a high-quality video that best complements your content
    • Don’t use videos that are distorted or blurry
    • Use videos with a high number of views
  • Copy the short link. To find the short link:
    • In YouTube, below the video select “Share”
    • In Vimeo, select “Share” in top right hand corner of video
  • Go to the article page in the CMS, and write “Watch the Video:”
  • On the next line insert the short URL
  • (Please note: Videos will not show up in the CMS.)
