How to Embed a Video

You can embed videos into Publish pages, News articles and Knowledge Base articles.

Videos can be embedded from your local machine, your Documents Management System or by using an embed code from an external video hosting site.

Claromentis supports the following video formats mp4, webm and ogv.

We recommend using file sizes of under 80MB.

In addition to ease play back on a variety of browsers/machines it is best to compress the file as much as your encoding application will allow whilst preserving quality.

As video playback is also affected by an individual’s browser set up web friendly videos are essential in order to make sure users do not experience issues during playback, this is outside the control of Claromentis.
