How to embed a video on the IOLI site

There are 3 ways to add your videos to ioli.

1. upload the video directly to our site.  Use this only if your video does not already exist elsewhere on the internet.  Doing it this way will use our storage space, and videos use a lot more than photos.  Click on VIDEO, click on +ADD, etc.

If your video already exists elsewhere on the internet, there are 2 additional methods, which do no use up our storage space.

2. post a link.  Go to the group that your video fits with.  Look for the red links under the avatars of the group members. Click on the one about ONLINE RESOURCES and leave a comment, which includes the link to your video.

3. Embed the video, following Mark's instructions below.  The video will look like it is posted here, but won't actually use up our storage.  This works especially well for videos on Youtube.

First go to your Youtube channel and select the video you want to embed into the videos section of this IOLI site.  Click on the SHARE button.

Then click on the EMBED button

This will give you a embed code below.  Copy this code.  It should automatically highlight it for you.

now go back to the videos section of the IOLI site and click the +ADD button to get to the right screen.  And then you paste this embed code into the field provided. 

Click on the ADD VIDEO button below that.  It will take you to the next screen where you fill out the info and tags.  Continue as instructed and the video will appear to be loaded onto the IOLI site, when in fact the source of the video is being stored at Youtube and the video action is being placed on the IOLI site.  It isn't actually uploaded to our site and taking up storage space.

Hope this makes sense.
