As you may know, ContactMonkey enables users to easily embed the thumbnail of any public facing YouTube or Vimeo hosted video. If your video is hosted privately or on a separate site, ContactMonkey recommends:
1. Take a screenshot of the video to be used as the thumbnail within the email.
2. Insert the thumbnail into an image block within your template.
3. Click ‘Apply effects and more’ from the right sidebar and go to the ‘Shapes’ tab.
4. Insert the triangle shape and rotate it so it looks like a play button.
5.Click the gear icon on the left to change the color and outline of the Play button.Once you are happy with the color, click "Save" and you will be reverted to the Template Editor.
In the same sidebar, scroll to Image Link, and paste in the URL of the video you would like to share.
The result will look identical to inserting a video block.
