    Hello

    For that you can use the Text option to embed the videos on your form and then insert the code:

    <iframe width="400" height="300" src="www.examplevideo.com" frameborder="0"></iframe>

     

    In which you can replace www.examplevideo.com for your video url.

    Also adjust the width and height values to the desired values.

     

    If you need more assistance please let us know.

    Hello

    Please paste this code instead (using the same method):

    <!-- copy and paste. Modify height and width if desired. -->

           <object id="scPlayer"  width="640" height="480" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://content.screencast.com/users/PhilipGardner/folders/Default/media/2fe4e8be-203a-430e-9448-d4eed0003964/scplayer.swf" >

    <param name="movie" value="http://content.screencast.com/users/PhilipGardner/folders/Default/media/2fe4e8be-203a-430e-9448-d4eed0003964/scplayer.swf" />

    <param name="quality" value="high" />

    <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" />

    <param name="flashVars" value="thumb=http://content.screencast.com/users/PhilipGardner/folders/Default/media/2fe4e8be-203a-430e-9448-d4eed0003964/FirstFrame.jpg&containerwidth=640&containerheight=480&xmp=sc.xmp&content=http://content.screencast.com/users/PhilipGardner/folders/Default/media/2fe4e8be-203a-430e-9448-d4eed0003964/Stuck%20in%20a%20Rut%20Solution.mp4&blurover=false" />

    <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />

    <param name="scale" value="showall" />

    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />

    <param name="base" value="http://content.screencast.com/users/PhilipGardner/folders/Default/media/2fe4e8be-203a-430e-9448-d4eed0003964/" />

    <iframe type="text/html" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" style="overflow:hidden;" src="//www.screencast.com/users/PhilipGardner/folders/Default/media/2fe4e8be-203a-430e-9448-d4eed0003964/embed" height="480" width="640" ></iframe>

    </object> 

    This has a size of 640px width and 480px height. You can adjust this values by replacing the values highlighted in green.

    Let us know please if you need more assistance.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply.  

    The good news is the video plays well. 

    The bad new is that the code shows up with the video.  In other words, in addition to showing the video screen playing, it also shows the code (including the yellow highlights) right above the video.

    Hello

    By the way every time you wish to add a new video to your form, just need to go the screencast video page, click on "share" tab, adjust the video dimensions and then copy using the previous method:
