About Embedded Media Boxes

An Embedded Media box displays a video or audio that a user can click on to play within your LibGuide.

Videos can be from YouTube or other video sharing sites that provide embedding code.

Note that many videos are too wide for a narrow column, though they can be resized by changing the code.
