Video Insert

I noticed in the old editor there is an option to insert a video, say from YouTube that inserts a clickable screenshot into an email campaign. This is a nice feature I would like to see in

I would like you to add the Youtube video link. Unable to send campaigns with video currently.

Thanks for the feedback! We do plan to implement "Insert Video" functionality in the near future. Until the feature is implemented, you may find it useful to add a YouTube link to an image in your email.

In previous iterations of the interface, I was able to easily embed YouTube videos into the emails. How is this done in the new interface?

I'm using one of your new templates, which I really like, however I'd like to be able to add videos.

I am liking the new editor, but when will you have other features added, like ability to add anchors, video links, etc. Also it would be nice to be able to change the background colors of an article, image, or button block and to be able to add a button into an article block.

Hi @KathyW84, you can drag the corner of any image to resize it. We haven't yet implemented the Video insert, but it is on our roadmap. Thanks!

There is absolutely no reason why the email campaigns and the auto-email templates have different options. For example, I cannot add a video link to an email campaign because that option is not available. It can only be added in the autoemailer series which is ridiculous.

I used Constant Contact for YEARS with my old company and decided to get it for personal use as well. I detest this editor and I can't get it to do anything. It also does not match up with your online tutorials. I'm trying to insert a video link into my email from Vimeo and I can't even get it to do that :frown:

HI @MelindaS576

I just sent an email to the address on file with us with some details, can you take a look and reply to me there? Thanks!

We have to have the functionality to embed videos back without having to do the workaround of an image.

I agree. I just switched from the new editor to the old one and losing this feature is a huge disappointment.
