(Update - 4/2013 Embed codes have been disabled and will be revisited once we’ve launched our premium features. If you have any questions please, let us know firstname.lastname@example.org)
Vsnappers use our service to send personal video messages. When we say personal, we mean that the vsnaps are addressed to one person or a small group of people. That’s what makes them so incredible in terms of prompting action on the part of recipients. Because this is our main use case, our embed code feature doesn’t get a ton of use. But there are some instances when it makes sense to embed a vsnap on your blog or your website. For example, when your customers send you testimonials that you want to show off (presumably with their permission, of course).
So how do you embed a vsnap?
First, jump on your computer (embed codes are not available on our mobile site or apps) and head to your main feed. Click on the vsnap you’d like to use. Quick note, you only have access to the embed codes of vsnaps you’ve created yourself. Just below the vsnap, there’s an embed button along with options to make the vsnap your signature, forward (email a signature), or tweet the vsnap.
Once you click on the embed button, you’ll be brought to your preview page:
The cool part about embedding a vsnap is not only do you embed your video but the title, description (if you have one), and any attachments (like links or downloadable files) also live with the vsnap. Because of this, the vsnap ends up being on the wide side. If width is an issue for your website, what you can do is take a screenshot of the vsnap and insert that image with a link to the vsnap instead. Please note, we do not track views of embedded vsnaps. Also know that the code that is generated is specific to an embedded vsnap, so don’t grab those links if you’re only trying to link to a vsnap instead of embed it. Once you click the copy button, you should be able to drop the code into the HTML of whichever page you want the vsnap embedded in.
