    How can I add a short video to the form I just created?

    Asked by paulanda on January 20, 2016 at 05:43 PM

    I created a business survey form and it works good. Now I want to know if I can add to the same form a short video (perhaps 2-5 min video). Thank you!

    Yes, you can add or embed video to your form. However, you need to upload it first to a video uploader website like YouTube or Vimeo. After that, you can use these Video Widgets to embed it on your form.

    Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.

    If I understand you correctly you already have  youtube video uploaded and would like to add this into your form.

    You can add the Youtube Widget into your form from the WIDGET section on the left tool bar

    Once you have selected the widget, all you need to do is enter the URL of you video in the wizard and click ADD WIDGET

    Please let us know if this helps.

    I checked your form, and the videos do not show, because you haven't embedded only the URL of the video:

    Here is my cloned version of your form: https://form.jotform.com/60235361964961

    You may clone if you want to: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hi Jan! I am creating another Jotform and I wanted to included this but I don't know how. 

     

    Legend 

    • 0 – 1 = Poor performance (immediate attention required) 

    • 1 – 2 = Below Average (urgent attention should be given) 

    • 2 – 3 = Fair (high priority for further investigation of need) 

    • 3 – 4 = Very Good (strong performance that should be driven to the next level) 

    • 4 – 5 = Excellent (competitive advantage and profit area - reinforce & reward)

     

    I know how to enter the Scale Rating but I don't know how to enter the above details to explain about the legends. Can you please help? Thank you!

    Hi there,

    If you want to replicate the existent form, you need to clone that form by using the method from the link below:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

     

    Also, renaming a form is really easy on "My Forms", double clicking on the file name is enough to change form's name just like you did on Windows OS. Please, see it from the below:

     

    For further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    Thanks.

    why cant i use raw embed code from Easyvideo suite..

    the html editor in your form builder will not save the entire embed code.. 

    or can you build a EVS widget... 

    for security .. i dont want my videos on you tube..

    @legacymarketingsystem

    Instead of posting on threads opened by others, I do suggest opening your own thread instead.

    I see that my colleague had already moved one of your posts on other threads to this thread: https://www.jotform.com/answers/846853 and provided you with a solution, so please do reply back there if needed.

    Thank you.
