How to load a video into an email campaign

I have a short and small mp4 video that I need to load into an email campaign. I keep getting the message that the image needs to be in another format such as:

jpeg or jpg

pdf

png

doc

ppt

xls

Not sure that even if I convert to one of these that it will run as a video.

Hello @ESPLF2021 ,

 

You'll need to host your video on a separate, dedicated video-hosting site, such as YouTube or Vimeo, or in a cloud drive that can provide share URLs for files uploaded.

 

For ways the ways to link to videos in your email, please check this article - also viewable through the Help tab in your account's top navigation bar.
