  • How do I embed the clips on my site?

    The general description of the process can be found in the *"How it works"* page. To go a little more in the details of the embedding process, here's a few answers to common questions:

    1. How do I copy the Embedding One-line Code? To copy the Embedding One-line Code to the clipboard, you can either press the "Copy to Clipboard" button on the lower left side of the Embedding Code itself, or you can select the text of the Embedding Code and press CTRL-C (Windows) or CMD-C (Mac).

    2. Where should I paste the embedding code? All you need to do is paste it anywhere in the source code of the web-page where you want the clip to appear. It makes no difference at which point of the code you do so: just paste it anywhere (CTRL-V on Windows, CMD-V on Macs) and then save the page. No previous functionality of the web-page will be affected by this additional code.

  • How do I change the settings of a clip?

    There are two kinds of settings: the Advanced Customization Settings that all the pre-made clips have - such as those that allow you to choose the clip's size and position on the page, or its behaviour - and the Extra Customization Settings that only some of the clips have, such as those where you can change the text or color of a button that appears in the clip itself.

    1. The Advanced Customization Settings: when you select a pre-made clip from the market and press the "ADD TO SITE" button, you start a setup process. During this process you will be given the opportunity to customize the clip's Advanced Settings by pressing on a blue button that is, not coincidentally, called "Advanced Settings". If you want to change these settings at a later moment, just login into your VideoStir account: you will find your clips listed under "My Videos". Choose the clip whose settings you want to change and go ahead and do so by clicking on "edit". Any change you make in your clip's settings from the Dashboard (remember to save the changes you made by pressing on the "Publish" button on the lower left!) will immediately be applied to your live clip - you will not need to touch a single line of code.

    2. The Extra Customization Settings: just like for the Advanced Customization Settings, upon pressing the "ADD TO SITE" button in a clip's detail page you will be immediately asked, if the clip in question requires it, to customize the clip's inner button or any other extra interactive features (i.e. colors, text) of the clip. Once you have entered your preferences, the embedded clip will immediately display your customizations. If you want to change these settings at a later moment, just login into your VideoStir account: you will find your clips listed under "My Videos". Choose the clip whose settings you want to change and go ahead and do so by clicking on "edit". Any change you make in your clip's settings from the Dashboard (remember to save the changes you made by pressing on the "Publish" button on the lower left!) will immediately be applied to your live clip - you will not need to touch a single line of code.
