How to include external content, like youtube or vimeo videos?

Monday, July 26, 2021

Instead of uploading a video file in the MEDIA tab, a video can also be linked as external content. It will then open in a new window within the exhibition, rather than a player on the wall as with the video file.

To include external content in your exhibition:

1 - create an artwork with a cover image for the external content, in the same proportions as the video player (both player and cover image proportions need to match)

2 - in the ADDITIONAL INFO tab, add the TAG "externalDetails" (in this spelling)

3 - assign a title for the link

Embeddable code as needed in this case differs from the normal url of such a video. Right-click on the video and select 'copy embed code' and copy that.

For youtube, edit the copied code in this manner:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9mOz3wcFGw

to

https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/l9mOz3wcFGw

For vimeo, in this scheme:

https://vimeo.com/585926868

becomes

https://player.vimeo.com/video/585926868

4 - put the manually edited URL into the URL field in the same ADDITIONAL INFO tab.

5 - Save your artwork and curate it in an exhibition.

Please consider the legal implications when copying and embedding other people's videos in your exhibition.
