Google Drive File Embed Link

In order to show a video or other documents through Brella to attendees, the file first needs to be uploaded to a cloud storage platform. After this, the video's embed link can be copied to Brella's Admin Panel. In this article, we will use Google Drive as an example of a cloud storage platform.

Note: In order for your video to play optimally within Brella, it is important to add the video's embed link to the Admin Panel. Do not use a direct share link, such as the link shown in your browser's address bar.

 

Where to find the embed link from:

  1. Upload the file to your Google Drive account. Make sure that the file's Share settings are set to Public, otherwise the file cannot be shown through Brella. GoogleDrive-share-settings
  2. Double click on the file in Google Drive to open it, click on "More actions" in the top right hand corner (three vertical dots) and choose "Open in new window". GoogleDrive-more_actions
