Adding video to your email
BEE Pro becomes Beefree
We're still the same design suite you know and love, just with a new name. Our team is working hard to update our documentation, but you might still see some information or screenshots that are out of date.
This article applies to the Email builder in all plans.
An Easy Way to Add Content from YouTube or Vimeo
The video content block allows you to share your video content in an easy way in your emails. You only need to copy and paste the URL of your video from YouTube or Vimeo. Beefree will do the rest: it will grab the cover image for the video, overlay a play icon on top of it, and link it to the video content.
How it Works
You will find a Video tile in the Content panel. Drag it into your design to get started.
Beefree is compatible with the following privacy settings:
- Youtube - Public and Unlisted
- Vimeo - Public, Unlisted
The builder supports the following aspect ratios for videos:
- 4:3 and 16:9 (standard video formats)
- 9:16 (YouTube shorts format)
- 21:9 and 9:21 (CinemaScope formats)
If you're using a YouTube video, you can also link the video starting at a specific timestamp. If you need information on how to generate this type of link, please see this Lifewire article.

Notes about embedding video in email
This feature does not embed the actual video in the email designed with Beefree, but rather links to it intuitively.
