Have you found a video you would like to add to your website? Great! You can do that using the following steps:

  1. Copy the Video Embed Code From YouTube

  2. Add the Video Embed Code to a Section on Your Page

Copy the Video Embed Code From YouTube

On YouTube, locate the video that you would like to embed. Once you are on the video page, click "Share":

You will see several share options. Click the "Embed" button to get the embed code:

Here, you can click "Copy" to copy the embed code. Make sure to keep the YouTube page open, in case you need to grab that code again!

If you need additional assistance, YouTube has a great step-by-step guide on getting embed codes for their content.

Now that you have the video embed code, it's time to add that code to a section on your page!

Add the Video Embed Code to a Section on Your Page

You have the option to add the embed code in one of two sections:

  1. HTML Code Section: Use this section if you want the video to take up the width of your website content area.

  2. Rich Text Editor Section: Use this section if you want the video to be inline with other content on your page or if you want to resize it so that it is smaller.

Adding the Video Embed Code to an HTML Code Section

With the embed code copied, you'll need to navigate to the page you'd like to add your video to in your FMG Suite admin.

Next, navigate to "Widgets," and then select an "HTML Code" section to add to your page:

Simply paste your embed code into the HTML Code section, and click "Done."

Click "Save Draft" to save your changes. Once you're ready, click "Publish" to submit your page to compliance!

Adding the Video Embed Code to a Rich Text Editor Section

With the embed code copied, you'll need to navigate to the page you'd like to add your video to in your FMG Suite admin.

Next, navigate to "Text," and then select the "Rich Text Editor" section to add to your page:

In the Rich Text Editor section you have added, click on the source code icon located on the top right:

Here, you will be able to paste your embed code. Once you have pasted your embed code, click "Ok."

Click "Save Draft" to save your changes. Once you're ready, click "Publish" to submit your page to compliance!

Other Video Hosting Platforms

Your video may be hosted on another platform, like Vimeo. See below for some additional documentation on these video hosting platforms:

If you have a video from a 3rd party — your Broker-Dealer or perhaps a marketing firm — simply ask them to provide you with the embed code and follow the steps above to add the video to your site.
