Adding embedded media to content works in the same way in both Episerver CMS and Episerver Commerce. Embedded media can be, such as a video or Flash animations. Just as with images, the embedded media must be available on the Media tab to be able to link to the media file as described in Managing media. The most common file formats are supported on the Episerver CMS sample site. For information about other formats such as Quicktime, Windows Media, and Real Media, see available accessibility coding standards.
Depending on the type of media you select on the General tab, the attribute options vary on the Advanced tab. For information about Flash movie attributes, see available accessibility coding standards.
Insert embedded media as follows:
- Place the cursor in the editor area where you want to insert your video or animation.
- Click Insert/edit embedded media on the editor toolbar.
- In Type, select the type of media and associated format, such as Flash, Quicktime or Windows Media. Flash is the default.
- In File/URL, browse to select the media file in the File Manager.
- In Dimensions, set the dimensions of the movie in pixels. Ensure that Constrain properties is selected to keep the proportions of the movie.
- Click Insert and the media is linked into the page.
