Embedding videos from Google Drive is a great way to allow clients to showcase a video and even give them the option to download it!

How to Embed a Video from Google Drive

To add a Google Drive video to your gallery, first head over to Google Drive and copy the link to the video:

This link should look like this:

From there, replace the ending "view?usp=drive_link" with "preview":

Then visit your gallery settings by clicking on the collection in your Collection Dashboard and then click Galleries & Apps at the top right. Next, click “Settings” next to the gallery you'd like to embed the video.

Next, scroll down to the bottom the "General" tab in your gallery settings to access the "Embed Media" section.

Take that link you edited earlier and paste it into the "Other URL" section on CloudSpot. Then, click Save Gallery!

BOOM! You're done! 🎉 🎉

✨ F.A.Q. ✨

Q: Can my client download the embedded video?

A: You bet! Simply click on the "Pop Out" Button to view the video on Google Drive.

Once there, your client can download the video by clicking on the "Download" button in the top right corner:

Q: Help! My video isn't loading in my Gallery!

A: Oh no! The most common cause for this is that the wrong link is embedded in the Gallery. Make sure that you've replaced the ending "view?usp=drive_link" of the standard link with "preview".
