When you Embed a Video from Youtube or Vimeo, Poppulo automatically adds a screenshot of the video with a play button icon superimposed over the top. This play button is called a Watermark, and indicates to readers that there is video content on the page. For video hosted elsewhere online, the steps below ensure you're still able to include a Play Watermark on a screenshot of your video.

When embedding a video that's hosted on a website other than YouTube of Vimeo, follow the instructions below.

Note: Video embedded on the cover page of your email, may not play in the inbox of your recipients.
