Adding videos to your forms can help give a little bit more personality to your forms. They can be used as a question to introduce the form or your company. Making sure the user watched a video can be one of the necessary steps before submitting a form.

Ziggeo is a media services provider that can host and transcode your videos to a format that will make them playable from any device. The mobile-friendly Ziggeo Video Player will help you get the same experience across different devices and browsers and can collect playback analytics.

  1. In the Form Builder, click the Add Form Element button.
  2. Go to the Widgets tab.
  3. Search for Ziggeo Video Player, and click it to add.
