HOWTO: Adding a video clip to a writing sample

We often get queries about adding video clips to Writing Samples.

For this we recommend using a specialist video hosting service like YouTube or Vimeo, they’re specially geared up to host video, both encoding it nicely for the web and they have lots and lots of bandwidth so your videos will load quickly on your reader’s computers.

To add a video into your Writer’s Residence site follow the steps below:

1. Create an account at a video hosting provider

2. Upload your video

3. Find the embed code they supply for putting a video in another site

4. Log in to Writer’s Resisdence and add that embed code into the body of your new writing sample and fill out the rest of the fields

5. Click save and view your writing sample.

Hope this helps and as ever, do get in touch if you have any questions.

Thanks,

-Tim
