Wistia is a popular video hosting service for businesses who want something more than what YouTube has to offer. Like YouTube, you can now have your Wistia videos embedded right in your conversation, so your members can watch the videos without leaving your community. Here’s how it works:

1. Go to Wistia.com and find a list of your projects.


2. Click on the project, and you will see a list of videos.


3. Click on the video you want to embed.


Copy the URL from the address bar, or you can click "Video Actions", and select the"Social Sharing" tab.



Please note, Wistia’s embed does not respect starting at a specific time. This is a limitation within the embed code from Wistia.

4. Paste it into a Discussion, a comment or message box

wistia_example_vanillaWistia will auto-embed, which means that community members can play the video without leaving your community.


We hope you enjoy this new feature. Check out the rest of the Social Media sites you can embed seamlessly.

Please note: Wistia Auto-Embed will only work with videos hosted at a Wistia Subdomain.
