How to Share and Embed TripSmarter Videos

1. Locate the video in the TripSmarter.Com Video Vault. You can do this by searching for a business name or video description using the search box... or by navigating to the On-Demand Video section using the navigation on our website. TripSmarter.Com Video Vault

2. Once you've located the video, look just below the video player where you will find our share buttons.   

There are two options for sharing videos:

• VIDEO LINK: Video Link is the address that points directly to your video page. This is the option you'll want to choose when emailing or linking directly to this page on Twitter, Facebook, etc. Recommended for most social media websites. Not compatible with YouTube.

• EMBED CODE: Embed Code allows you to insert the video with our video player on a website of your choosing. Click on the button and copy/paste this HTML snippet into your website to insert the video player directly into your page. This way visitors will be able to play the video without leaving your site. Not compatible with most social media sites (use Video Link instead!). Not compatible with YouTube.

Please note: On-demand videos can be embedded or linked to on other websites as long as you use the share code we provide. Live TV streams and live cams can be shared via a direct link only. We do not permit any of our live TV streams or live cams to be embedded on other websites. Thanks!
