Embedding and Sharing


Now that you’ve got your content uploaded and ready to go, you can start sharing it with the world!

We’ve got you covered from playing your media right within your Wistia account, all the way to embedding it on your own website. The following articles will be your go-to’s for understanding the different types of ways you can share your media and start collecting those amazing plays.

Our embedding process is made to be as easy as possible. We start by offering you two main options for embed codes: Inline Embeds (for video and audio files), and Popover Embeds (for video files). Both of these codes are ready to embed from the start and can be copy and pasted into your website’s HTML builder or video widget.

Do you have a website that doesn’t play well with the typical embed code, or isn’t a fan of javascript? No problem, we even have a resilient iframe for you to try which we like to call the Fallback Embed.

Want to share your content beyond embedding on a website? Well good news, we made sure you have plenty of sharable options that are just as quick and easy. You’ll have the ability to share your media publicly right from your Wistia media’s URL.

Alternatively, if you prefer to only share your content with a select audience, then we also provide you with privacy settings such as video passwords and locked projects.

On top of all that, you’ll also have the option to share your content within your email provider, or on social media such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Youtube. To learn more about sharing on social media, visit our Publish to Social and Social Sharing pages.
