How to use the Video Template

Videos can be added to your Courses using the Video Template. From the Video Template, you can add videos from Youtube or Vimeo, with the option of searching both sites from within your template editor. If you’d like to upload your own video, you’ll need to first upload it to either Vimeo or Youtube and copy the video URL as outlined below. 

Step 1: Select the Video Template from the ‘Text, Images & Video Templates’ panel.

From this screen, you can add videos in 3 different ways.

Note: Your videos must be embedded from either Vimeo or Youtube. If you’d like to upload your own video, you’ll need to upload it to one of these sites first and then link it into your eCoach Course.

Method 1: If you already know what image you’d like to upload, simply enter its URL in the ‘Video URL’ box and select whether it’s from Vimeo or Youtube:
