A dialog box will be displayed with several options

  • Size: Select the size of the frame of the video player. The default player size is 360 x 240 pixels (widescreen)

  • Align-middle: If the user wants to align the embedded video at the middle of the page he/she can choose to do so by clicking on the Align-middle box.
  • Start playing the media file automatically: Select this option to have the media file played immediately on the webpage as soon the webpage loads. 
Note: If the user is not able to check this option then please uncheck the 'Include thumbnail as a splash image' option
  • Include Thumbnail as splash image (Default): Display a Thumbnail  (Include Thumbnail as splash image).
  • Show captions by default (Default): The user can uncheck this option if the media file is to be played back by default without the captions that may exist for the title. In such case any person accessing the title would have to select the caption file for it to be displayed.   

Click on 'Generate' to generate the embed code.

Users can copy and paste this code to embed the media to any webpage or blog or Learning Management System. If the media resource is protected, appropriate message is displayed and the user is asked to login before access.

Note: If your institution already has LMS integration with illumira, it is highly recommended that you use the illumira LMS tool within your LMS instead of the following steps to embed a media resource in the course. 

While embedding a illumira media resource it should be noted that any copyrights and access permissions that may exist on the original file are still applicable will be enforced.
