How to add video to an event page

Updated: 26/02/15


  • You can add a video to "Event Details" section of your event page to help show attendees what to expect at your event. After uploading your video to YouTube or another video-sharing site, copy the old embed code for the video, then go to your event's Edit page. Under Step 1: Event Details, just access the "Event description" field and select the filmstrip icon to embed the video to your event page.
1

Upload your video to a video-hosting site like Youtube.

You can upload your video to a video-hosting website, or choose a video that's already uploaded.

Upload is located in the upper right, next to your email address.

Tip: While you can add your own video directly to the event page, we highly recommend uploading the video to another site like YouTube first, as most video files are too large to upload to Eventbrite.

Note

Note: Any videos you use must be yours or adhere to Creative Common copyright licenses. Videezy is a great site to find stock videos for unlimited use.

Copy the link for the video you want to insert and add it to the old embed code.

The Event description won't support iframes, so you'll need to use the old embed code for the video to insert it to your event page.

YouTube no longer offers the old embed code, but you can copy the link for the YouTube video you want to insert (starting with the http:), then paste it in the brackets in this strip of code:

​​<object width="600" height="497" data="[[INSERT VIDEO URL]]" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowsriptaccess" value="always" /> <param name="src" value="[[INSERT VIDEO URL]]" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /></object>

Tip: Want to have your YouTube video automatically start playing on your event page? All you have to do is enter autoplay=1 at the end of the video URL.

For example, the URL could be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbPcjwKH0HM?autoplay=1.

Pro Tip: Make sure to include the s in https:// when copying the video URL. This will help ensure that the video plays everywhere.

Go to your Edit page on Eventbrite.

After logging in to your Eventbrite account and creating an event, find your event on the My Events page, then select Edit.

Edit is under the event title and date/time on the My Events page.

Note

Note:If you have a repeating event, the video you add will appear on all of the events in your schedule.

4

Locate your "Event description" under Step 1: Event Details and select the filmstrip icon.

The filmstrip icon is located in the Event description toolbar. The video will be inserted wherever your cursor is placed.

The multi-media icon is farthest to the right on the toolbar in the Event description.

Tip: You can add images to your event page by selecting the tree icon, then uploading the image from your computer.

Pro Tip: You can also select Add FAQs to add answers to common questions about the event or registering.

5

Use the "Source" tab.

Choose the Source tab at the top of the Insert/Edit Embedded Media window.

The Source tab is located at the top of the Insert/Edit Embedded Media window.

Note

Note: Don't upload iframes to Eventbrite because they won't display on the event page.

6

Paste the old embed code and choose "Insert."

Copy and paste the old embed code for your video into the Source field, then select Insert.

Insert is located in the bottom left corner of the Insert/Edit Embedded Media window.

7

You'll see your video inserted in the "Event description."

A video box won't be viewable in the event editor, but can be previewed on your event page by choosing Design or View.

Your video will be inserted in the Event description box wherever your cursor is placed.

Tip: You can center or align the video by using the text-alignment buttons in the Event description toolbar after highlighting the video.

8

Check out your event page.

Select View to go to your event page. You'll see the video added in the Event Details section on your event page.

Tip: Create a custom header and/or footer to liven up your event page and mimic your own website!
