VIDIZMO Portal allows customers to offer a central location for accessing and viewing all published media for their end viewers. However, there are many use cases requiring access to media via other outlets such as your corporate website, intranet, blogs, HR management systems (HRMS), customer relationship management (CRM) system or other content management systems so that the target audiences can be served with relevant media content via existing platforms without having to redirect traffic to VIDIZMO Portal. To address this need, VIDIZMO offers the ability to embed published media in external web based content management systems using a simple HTML code snippet (usually called Embed Code) that can be easily copied and pasted in target systems web page.


VIDIZMO Administrators can generate the embed code for all media types from Media Management at any time. And if allowed by the Administrators, embed code can also be copied from  Playback Page. Click on How To Embed Media Files From Playback Page to learn more. 


Types of Embed Code


VIDIZMO offers the ability to generate two types of embed code: Iframe and object embed code.


1. Iframe Code: The Iframe embed code is a window on a remote page that contains the player. For viewers, it looks the same as a video. However, the Iframe embed code gives the developer the ability to alter the embed code dynamically. It can adjust to the viewer’s software configuration and settings.

For example, if a viewer does not have Flash installed, the Iframe will detect it automatically and play the HTML5 version of VIDIZMO’s player. Other than that, when any setting is modified, the Iframe will also update in real time to match the new configuration. 

By using the Iframe embed code, users can enable auto playback of audio and video player. It can also manage the dimension of players, offer full-screen playback, and enables Single Sign-On which redirects the user to Federation Sign In page provided that the Channel authentication is federated with a SSO provider.

2. Object Code: The Object embed codes are static where the majority of the settings are applied to the embed code using Flashvars. When a user uses the Object embed code, the settings are a static component of the embed itself.

Moreover, unlike the Iframe, the Object embed does not update dynamically. The Object code ensures HTML5 playback which is handled by the default media player of the browser. The functionality and behavior of the player are thus determined by the browser.

In Object code embed, users can select the rendition they wish to embed. However, it does not support Single Sign-On (SSO).
