Video Upload from Amazon ASW s3

Hello!  I am wondering if constant contact can upload videos from Amazon Storage location.  I do not want to use Vimeo anymore, however when I put the link from Amazon, it is not recognizing the link.  It truly is a valid link and I am using the same link in other platforms.  Do I need to upload it a different way to be able to use the Amazon link in Constant contact?  Thanks!!!

Hey there @HeatherB99,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. The video action blocks are great tools for being able to capture a YouTube or Vimeo thumbnail and automatically add a video play button to it. However, for those who host videos on other sites, the action block doesn't offer the same functionality.

 

For these scenarios, we typically recommend either using a text link, or inserting an image of the thumbnail into the email, and linking to it through the image.

 

If you're wanting to have a play button added on top of the image, there's a 3rd-party site some of use to have one added to a "thumbnail" jpg/png. Then, once you've downloaded the new version of your thumbnail with the video play watermark added, you can insert that into your email and link it up.
