How to embed a Google Drive video, pdf, presentation, image, etc.?

Open the Google Drive file in a new window, choose "More actions", click on "Embed item" and then copy the link shown between the quotation marks within the embed script.

To show a video or other documents through Brella, the file first needs to be uploaded to a cloud storage platform (E.g: Google Drive). After this, the file's embedded link can be copied to Brella's Admin Panel.

This article shows you how to embed any material stored in Google Drive to the Streams tab or Virtual Booths. The steps are the same for all files.

Note: For the files to show optimally within Brella, it is important to add the video's embedded link to the Admin Panel. Do not use a direct share link, such as the link shown in your browser's address bar.

How to embed a Google Drive file to Brella:

  1. Upload the file to your Google Drive account. Ensure that the file's share settings are set to Public; otherwise, the file cannot be shown through Brella.
