How do I Embed YouTube and Vimeo videos as Custom Links?

 

If you're trying to add a video hosted by YouTube or Vimeo as a Custom Link, you may find that when you choose to have the video pop up in the Tour Player, you receive an error stating "Custom Link 1 Url Unbranded won't display in a popup window because the host disallows it."

If you want to get the video to open in a popup box, you have to scheme the URLs so they are using the embed links of the respective services. Those formats, and how to update them are shown below:

Vimeo

Links are for demo purposes only and may not work

If your Vimeo link is showing as: https://vimeo.com/tourbuzz/review/71483358/abf123234

You should reformat your link scheme as: http://player.vimeo.com/video/71483358

 

Youtube

Links are for demo purposes only and may not work

If your YouTube link is showing as: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gwfEhmgrVo

You should reformat your link scheme as: https://www.youtube.com/embed/uBIpnToZVp8?autoplay=1
