Add Videos to Property Listings

Add a video embedded from YouTube, Vimeo, etc. for each of your listings.

 

There is a new field called Video Embedding Code that can be used to add a video of the property to any listing. Videos can be added from YouTube, Vimeo, or any video hosting site that provides the embedding code. For example, in order to use a video from YouTube, click on the Share button and then the Embed button. You will see a line of HTML code. Copy this HTML embedding code.

Now go to edit the listing you wish to add the video to. Under the Basic Info tab you will find the new field Video Embedding Code. Paste the HTML embedding code into the desired language. Right now, the video will only show up for users that browse your listing in that specific language.

After you hit save, you will see a new tab show up on the left hand side called Video. Click on the tab and you will see the video embedded from YouTube.

When you add the embedding code for a single language, for example in English, the video will only show up when people are browsing your listing in English. If you have a different video for your property in another language, for example in Spanish, then you can always click on Add Translation and click on the language you would like to add. Switch to the new language tab and paste the HTML embedding code of the different video. This way, a user viewing your listing in English will see the English-language video while a user viewing your listing in Spanish will see the Spanish-language video.

However, if you would like the same video to be shown for all users, no matter what language, you will need to click on Add Translation for every language and paste the same HTML embedding code into each tab separately. Any tab that not added or intentionally left blank will not show a video to the users in that language.

This same process can be used to add videos from Vimeo or any other video hosting site that provides HTML embedding code. You only need to find the way to get the HTML embedding code and copy and paste it as shown above.
