You can embed almost any of your uploaded content, anywhere with Zight. Embedding content allows you to place your content on your website and make it easily accessible to others.

  • First, you'll need to get an 'Embed' code
  • To get the 'Embed' code, you can get it from:
    • The viewer page
    • If you have the Mac app installed, you can find the 'Embed' code in the file editor menu

Getting the embed code from the file viewer page:

  • Copy and paste the link of your content into your browser.
  • This opens up your viewer page.
  • From there, select the ‘Share’ button then click the ‘Embed’ option and ‘Copy’ the embed code. Then paste the code into your website text editor. As shown below:

Example: How to embed your video in a Wordpress website page



In the video example above, after I've copied the embed code, you'll notice that with Wordpress, I've selected the 'Custom HTML' option and then pasted in my iframe code. This may not be exactly the same for you in your website, but typically what you'll want to do is change from "Visual" editor to "Text" or "Code" editor so that you can paste in your code. An example of what that code would look like is here:


<iframe src=";branding=true&amp;title=true" width="360" height="201" style="border:none" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowtransparency="true" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>


To find the embed code from the Mac app:

  • Open your application and click on the three dots located next to your content
  • Click ‘copy embed code’
  • Or use the hotkey “Ctrl+Shift+⌘+E”


Some users may want to embed their content on an external (non-Zight hosted) site or webpage. If you choose to do so, please be aware that embedded content will be visible in search results if embedded on public sites (making the content no longer private). Some bandwidth limits also apply, see here
