How do I embed a video?

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VsvLU29Q7Js" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

2. Copy the URL in between the double quotation marks in the src field. Note that this URL must be secure (HTTPS):

3. Paste this URL into the HTML options for your HTML widget and then click save & close:

The video should now be embedded in your HTML widget:
