How to Generate or Customize an Email Embed Code

SproutVideo supports email embed codes for a majority of email newsletter service providers. An email embed code allows you to quickly and easily place your video poster frame in a campaign, and the image is linked to a video landing page (or URL of your choice).

Since most platforms do not support video playback in the inbox at this time, this is an excellent way to drive traffic to your video with an email campaign.

Implementing an email embed code is as easy as copy and paste. What’s more, we will automatically capture and track the email address of your viewers and report on viewer activity in your video engagement metrics.

  • Go to the Videos page in your SproutVideo account, click on the video you’d like to embed, and look for the Email Embed option under the video image.
