Videos can be added to content as hyperlinks from video-sharing websites, such as Vimeo or Youtube, allowing visitors to seamlessly watch videos without ever leaving the document viewer. Videos will be tracked in the recent activity page as in-document link clicks. Check out our example from this DocSend Video.
Note: We recommend unlisting Youtube or Vimeo video uploads for additional privacy.
Steps to add video hyperlinks
- Take a screenshot of the video you want to include. The video should already be hosted online.
- Get the screenshot into your document. Insert the image into your presentation.
Tip: We recommend that the video be on its own slide to help improve document tracking.
- Turn the image into a hyperlink. Copy/paste the share URL of the video as the link target.
- Save and upload your document into DocSend and preview your content.
