adding video

Can I add a video directly to the email without using a URL?  I don't want to use Vimeo, You Tube or another platform to click through?

I want the video to play with one click.

Hello @LisaV733 ,

 

Videos are not able to be uploaded to the Library due to sizing and file type restrictions. Additionally, more and more email programs do not want embedded videos to be in emails due to security risks and email size bloat, therefore we only allow links to videos. 

 

If you don't want to use standard video hosting site, you can also upload the video to a cloud drive, and link to it that way.
