Does anyone know if there is a way to get a video to play directly within an email sent via Constant Contact vs. redirecting to a different page to view it?

Hello @WindowWaresInc. ,

 

At this time videos aren't embeddable in emails, and can only be inserted as redirectable links, either through the video block, or through a standard text, image, or button link.

Thanks for the reply William, when you say "at this time" does that mean in the future this feature might become available?

It's something that the devs have been looking into, but there's no hard ETA on the delivery of it.

Has there been any update on this? My video still redirects to Vimeo I stead of playing within the email. Looking to change that.

Hello @MaryL536 ,

 

It is on the devs' radar but at this time there's currently no plans for development. With all the various video hosts, combined with varying email program/app and network security measures, there is currently no way to make consistent video playing in-email available.
