Video Options

There are a few easy ways to add videos to your website. You can embed videos from sites such as Youtube or Vimeo directly into any text editor or add a link to a third-party site. If you're transitioning from Clover Sites Classic, you can migrate your media files from the Classic Media Player into your new Clover Sites 3 website. You can also embed Youtube/Vimeo videos in a Media Section!
