How to embed videos from YouTube or any other video host

Created by METAGEO Support, Modified on Fri, 21 Jul 2023 at 05:06 PM by METAGEO Support

Currently, METAGEO doesn't host video files, but you attach a video link from YouTube, Vimeo, or other service. 

First create a point vector layer by clicking on the pencil "edit" button on the top right of the screen, then click the draw points button, and draw the point(s) where you'd like to embed the video.

Once you've created the point, click on the point, and the right info panel menu will open. You can then change the style to change the icon if you'd like. 

Scroll down go down to the links section in the info panel, and paste in a link, and be sure to click save at the top.

Now when you mouse over the video it will give a preview embed of the video.
