How to embed the video
You must create an account at www.viewed.video and upload your video. Then follow the steps in the platform to create the campaign and copy the video ID as indicated in the tutorial. Paste this video ID in the required field in Hubspot and your video will appear in your html template. Configure the size, autoplay, sound and other parameters of your video and complete your email template as usual in Hubspot. That’s all! Your video email is ready to work in regular or automated campaigns.

Done! your campaign is now ready to send!
Compatibility and some video email restrictions
Despite VIEWED provides with the best video email technology nowadays, some email clients are not fully compatible with video files. In these cases, the recipients of your email will receive a video-GIF or a fallback click-to-play image. VIEWED automatically creates up to three different video-GIF files intended to mobile, tablet or desktop users than are not able to playback the video within the email. Then users will be able to make click on the video-GIF to open and watch the video with sound in a landing page. Even so, approximately 15% of contacts will also not be able to see a video-GIF. These contacts will automatically receive a click-to-play fallback image. You can visit www.viewed.video/technology/ and download the “compatibility table” to learn more about the format that every contact will receive.
