VIDIZMO allows users to embed published media including audio, videos, documents, images, playlist, and collections in other web-based platforms using their HTML embed codes. VIDIZMO provides an added functionality in embedding by enabling single sign-on for improved security.

There are two ways this HTML embed code can be generated and copied:

i. Playback Page: All users who can access the media playback page can use this option to generate and copy the embed code. 

Note: This option is only available if the Portal Settings have Allow Embedding under Media Publish Settings. Manager+ roles can also control this by configuring Default Publishing Rules for each media type.

ii. Media Manager: All users with Moderator+ roles with access to Media Manager, can generate embed code using this option.

Steps to Generate Embed Code from the Playback Page
1. From the Portal's Homepage:

i. Click on the thumbnail of your desired media file to be redirected to its playback page.

2. On the media Playback page:

i. Click on the overflow menu to expand more options.

ii. Click on the Embed option.

iii. Embed Code: Use the text field to copy the Embed Code to use it on external HTML-based applications and content management platforms such as SharePoint, WordPress, Drupal, etc.

iv. Player Type: This option is helpful in deciding the player type that you want to display at the destination Web page

a. Fixed: Select this option if you want to provide the player Dimensions yourself. 

b. Responsive: Select this option if you want to make your player responsive i.e. the player should adjust itself with the change in the web page size.

v. Dimensions: Enter the required Dimensions for the video player to open as the default dimensions or frame size of the media to be embedded on the viewer's device.

Note: This option will only be visible if you have selected Fixed in above steps.

vi. You can also choose to enable SSO to provide secure access to the viewers by selecting the Enable Single Sign-On checkbox.

Note: If you have configured Single Sign-On using Azure Active Directory on your Portal, read here to access embedded media on other platforms.

vii. Select the Autostart option to enable the video playback as soon as the player is launched. 

viii. Muted: To enable video muted playback, select this checkbox. The player's volume control can be used anytime to unmute the video during playback.

ix. Using the Start At checkbox, you can set the point from which the playback will start. Leaving it unchecked or setting it to "0" starts the playback from the beginning of the video.

x. Enable Fullscreen: This checkbox allows the player to automatically open in fullscreen mode as soon as the user video is played. 

Note: In case of Live Streaming the Enable Autostart option will no longer be available since a Live Webcasts can only start at their scheduled times. Also, when the Live Webcast has ended, the embed code is no longer available for copying from the Embed Code field.
