Video & Media

Reason allows you to include media items (audio & video) on your pages in a variety of ways. You can:

  • Embed a YouTube or Vimeo video (see below) if you have the new TinyMCE editor on your Reason site
  • Upload MP3s as assets for people to download

Embed a YouTube/Vimeo Video on Your Page

First verify that you have the appropriate text editor available to you on your website. The editor should be black and white and look like this:
TinyMCEeditor

The editor should not look like this:
NotLokiEditor

If you do not have the correct editor, email us at webservices@kzoo.edu to request access to video embedding on your Reason website.


To Use the Video Embedder:

  1. Edit or create your web page.
  2. Within the "Content" section of your page, click the area where you would like to insert/embed a video.
  3. Click the "Insert video" icon on your text editor:
    TinyMCEeditor_InsertVideo
  4. Type or copy/paste the "Video URL" and click Ok.
  5. A placeholder image will show on in your content area:
    VideoPlaceholder
  6. Click Save and Finish  to submit your changes and embed your video.
