Uploading videos with links
Uploading Videos into your Product Post can be accomplished with video files from Google Drive, Dropbox, your local hard drive, and with links. However, the Links field will not accept links to a video hosted on a site like Youtube or Vimeo because they are not direct links to the actual video files that the file uploader requires. Keep in mind, video hosting sites like Youtube and Vimeo do not allow the downloading of videos from their site with a link to protect the creator and owner of the video.
The file uploader in Kajabi requires a file type to accept a Youtube or Vimeo link. For instance,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C_HReR_McQwould not be accepted.
http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.mp4would be an acceptable file link because of the .mp4.
