Annotations/Clickable Links

Add multiple timed annotations and calls-to-action to any video, even if you're not the owner. Go PRO and you can add clickable external website links. See how we use it in this example to invite viewers to sign up on MailChimp. You can even use your own text for links as shown here ». Are you a video marketer needing to embed a product video? Add links to your conversion pages at the end of playback » Are you an educator? Link to a quiz/survey and get student feedback.

Chapter/Scene Marking

Viewers might only want to focus on certain parts of a video, especially if it's long. Mark notable parts like sports highlights, new levels in a video game walkthrough, changing performers, and important lecture sections. Reference scenes by their numbers.

Deleted Video Alerts

YouTube takes down videos all the time, leaving 'empty embeds' across a vast number of already published pages. Find out when, so you can avoid the annoying 'This video does not exist' message on your site.

Instant Replay / Loop

Replay an event soon after it happens. Also double-click to loop the replay. You can even triple-click to loop the whole video. Embed music videos on your site and you might find your visitors using this to loop the catchy songs.

Wizards / Automatic Defaults

Whether you're setting parameters and automating site-wide defaults, there can be multiple options to consider. Our tools also include wizards for convenience and greater flexibility than tools like oEmbed. You won't have to memorize or look up codes for tasks like: cropping a video so that it just plays the interesting part, forcing HD, auto-loading the HTTPS player, finding the best-fit size, initializing the volume level, and much more.

Animations / Lazy Loading

Display eye-catching special effects as videos load on the page.

Diagnostic Reports

Discover important service problems that Google/YouTube are having right now that might affect your embeds, playlists, and analytics. The reports include issues affecting different devices (e.g. phones, tablets, and PCs).

Reactions / Comments

Show the latest Internet reactions, right from your site ». We are currently showing reactions from Google+, Reddit, Twitter, and YouTube.

Video SEO Tags

Automatically add Google, Bing, and Yahoo friendly markup for a greater chance of showing up in search engine video results, even if you aren't the owner. The markup also promotes the chances of your pages showing up with actual video thumbnails within SERPs.

Mobile Compatibility Check

More and more visitors are browsing the web using mobile devices. Some YouTube channels, however, block the viewing of their videos on these devices for different reasons (e.g. preferred desktop ad revenue and user experience). For each standard YouTube video you embed, you can see if it has restrictions that might limit your site's mobile visitors from viewing it.

Analytics Dashboard

A straight-forward dashboard that's quite informative without being complicated and difficult to use. It was designed from the ground up to answer specific questions that video embedders really want to know, while avoiding information overload. Find out: How does the view activity on your site compare to other sites like it? How much do the producers of videos you embed rely on your site for views? Are you embedding videos that have restrictions that you are not aware of? More here »

Sweet Spot Marking

Helps you catch the best parts of a video by revealing the scenes that are generating the most buzz by other viewers. Jump right to them with the chapter buttons. Read more here ».
