Embedding Videos/Channels

Your Unreel Site may be awesome, however sometimes you or one of your viewers will want to put one of your videos or an entire channel on a different site. 

Embedding an Unreel.me video/channel elsewhere on the web:

Each video on Unreel powered sites has an embed code that can be copied and pasted anywhere else on the web. You can choose whether you want to share a single video or the entire channel that video lives on.

Step one: Accessing the embed code

On your Unreel site, click into the video through the intended channel you want to embed. Select the share icon on the right hand side.  The bottom line of code in the share section is the embed code!


You have multiple options to choose from:
Autoplay on load - video will autoplay when you embed on to your site/article upon load (Note* due to some browser policy updates on Web, some browsers will override this and force the embed to not autoplay on load)
Autoplay muted on mobile - This is a required setting if you want your video to autoplay on mobile web, if you choose to do so, the embed will automatically mute the embed on load on Mobile Web environments.

Autoplay next Video - This will allow the unreel embed to move to the next video once the video its on finishes

Muted on playback - If checked off, this will allow the unreel embed to be muted on playback and users will be able to unmute it to listed to it.


Step two: Embed the entire channel

To embed the entire channel, simply grab the embed, locate the source URL in the embed and remove the video id from the url.

Here's an example -

<iframe src="https://www.bumblebee.tv/watch/channel/americas-funniestvideos/0-crjvvhakdoiy-overly-dramatic-reactions-americas-funniest-people-compilation?embed=true&autoplay=true&autoplayMuteMobile=true&autoplayNext=true&mute=false" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" width="560" height="315" allowfullscreen style="overflow: auto; -webkit-overflow-scrolling: touch;"></iframe>


In the above Embed, simply delete the highlighted ID and you will be embedding the whole channel. Once Embed is loaded, it will select the first video in the channel.

Now take this iframe code and embed it on a website, article, mobile web page etc. and watch the views roll in!
