Embed YouTube Video

Embed YouTube Video was created by diamondmaxx
Want to embed a screencast youtube video on our website (may be several of them but don't want to bog down the site). Or perhaps just a link on the website to a PRIVATE video (training). Would like to know who all views the video to insure max participation. Would like presenter image on the screencast optionally. Any ideas?

Hi Maxx,

Will each person have their own Joomla account?

Looking forward to helping.

Kind regards,
Nick

No...viewers will be members of a non-profit assoc and we will want to track who views the videos. These people wouldn't know Joomla from an elephant.

cheers,
Maxx

Do you want to track as individuals or as a whole?

If individuals, that will be tricky or impossible (in practice). Will you be sending out links to the page via email? If so, the links can be customized using a newsletter app like MailChimp to keep track of who clicked the link (not necessarily watched the video).

Kind regards,
Nick

Thanks, Nick. But I found a solution. FYI, Wistia is a video hosting firm and offers this found down the page a bit at wistia.com/product . Tells how long each viewer spent watching. Also Camtasia suggest you embed a question in the video at some unknown spot and when they exit the video, they have to enter name, email and answer to the question. They send you a spreadsheet daily of all those viewing your video.

Cool,
Maxx
