How to embed video – Youtube or Vimeo

Posted on May 19, 2015 by Kim Carruthers

Adding video

 

Go to youtube and find the video you want.

Then select as follows:

Go to Shopify, open the place where you want to add video, mark it with ### then switch to ‘show html’

Paste the code you copied from YouTube over top of the ###

And save.

Click the <> button again to swap back to normal view.

You can then check it looks right on your page.

 

Adding a link to another page from an existing product page

first copy the link of the destination page – e.g. if you want to link to the dinosaur 5-drawer cabinet:

e.g.
http://www.yuidan.com.au/collections/cabinets/products/dinosaur-5-drawer-cabinet-1

then type the text you want to link, highlight it, and click on the link tool:

Paste in the link you copied (it should always start with http) and give it a title then save it.

Now you can test it.

 

VIMEO

 

There are lots of choices under ‘show options’. Be aware that you can hide height OR width but not both.
Once you’ve set the options you want, copy the embed code, and paste it into your website

Go to Shopify, open the place where you want to add video, mark it with ### then switch to ‘show html’

Paste the code you copied from YouTube over top of the ###

And save.
Click the <> button again to swap back to normal view.
You can then check it looks right on your page.
