Adding videos using Wistia, Vimeo, and YouTube

Adding videos to your course lessons in Teachery is super simple. As a reminder though, we do not host your videos in Teachery (you won't upload them to our site). You'll want to choose a video hosting provider like Wistia, Vimeo, or YouTube

Wistia*: More professional looking. More features. Unbranded player (no logos or anything).

Vimeo Pro: Similar to Wistia, but slightly less features.

Vimeo (free): Good player, nice looking, but has Vimeo logo on it.

YouTube (free): Slowest loading player, but free and easiest to use. 

There are other video hosting companies that you can use with Teachery, as long as they provide you with iframe embed code (or something similar).

*Wistia is the video host we recommend if you're willing to spend a little money on video hosting. 

Here is a video on how to embed Wistia, Vimeo, and YouTube:



NOTE: Embedding Wistia videos within sublessons 

Because of the way we load javascript within sublessons in courses, you'll need to make sure you select a certain option when embedding Wistia videos (this is for Wistia only)

When you grab the embed code from Wistia, there's an option to switch to "Fallback" code. Grab that embed code and replace your video codes in your sublessons to ensure they display properly. We recommend using the fallback code on all your Wistia embedded videos in all lessons in Teachery.
