How to add videos

2 min. readlast update: 05.30.2024

The first thing to note is that we do not host videos on Touch Stay, we only embed them from other sources. Videos for use in Touch Stay need to be available on one of the following video platforms:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Tiktok
  • Wistia
  • Loom
  • Streamable

To add a video simply copy the share URL from the video sharing platform into the video upload box and you will then be able to add that video to your Topics. Note that you must have the privacy settings on your video set to allow public access, if you do not want your video to be returned in search results for YouTube then select “Unlisted” (do not select “Private” otherwise only you will be able to view it!).

There are two ways to add videos:

  1. At the top of the Topic box - ideal if you want just one video in a Topic
  2. Inline with your Topic text at any position in the Topic box - ideal if you want to add multiple videos to a single Topic


How to add a video at the top of your Topic

1 . Go to the “Edit Topic” option by clicking the edit pencil next to the Topic title in Content Hub, or found in the 3 dots menu for the Topic where you want the video to display.

2 . Next, click on the “Add Media” option underneath the content box.



3 . Select the “New Photo/Video from URL” option and then paste the share link from the video sharing service into the box and click Submit.



How to add a video inline at any position in the Topic box

1 . Open the Topic box where you want to add an inline video and click the 3 grey dots to the right of the Content box menu. This will reveal another line of options. Click the media icon.


2 . Click 'New Photo/Video from URL' option and poste in the video URL in the box below. Click the 'Submit' button directly below AND the 'Submit button at the bottom of the page also. 


You video will now be show inline with any other text or content in this Topic box.
