How to Upload or Embed a Video in a Help Article

 

ProProfs Knowledge Base lets you easily embed videos from popular platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, and Blip.tv, or you can upload videos directly from your local drive.

 

Videos are great for walk-throughs, demos, presentations, and more. When adding a new page, you can specify it as a “video” page so users can quickly identify it in the table of contents (TOC) and the search results.
