    Hi Craig, thanks for the feedback! I've noted this down for our product manager Guillermo. Right now in the BEE editor you could use the custom HTML content block and add your HTML5 video code, but only if you're proficient in HTML.

    HI - Thanks,
    In my other editor i wrote a plugin similar to the mailchimp one, and would love to replicate the ability, most of my users are not html proficient and to date this editor is the one that causes the least issues.
    What chances are there for a customisable call to content like the html block that we can pass through?

    Hi Craig, currently, you can manage the video insertion on your application, as part of a parallel workflow, and pass it as a merge content to the editor when is started. The experience is not the same, but this may work till we add some improvements to the merge content feature and develop new features for the addition of custom elements. Hope this helps.

    Hi Adam, yes, this is high on our to-do list. Can you confirm that you are looking for an implementation similar to MailChimp's (i.e. "Most email clients don't support embedded video, so the Video content block automatically pulls a thumbnail, or preview image, from the video and links it to the video's URL.") and not one where the video is played in the inbox?

    I just wanted to add my vote for this also. Our customers have requested it.

    Both Youtube and Vimeo are blocked in China.

    It's great to add Chinese video platform such as QQ and Youku into support list.

    Hi Bevis, thanks for the feedback, really interesting.

    Do you know if these services provide support or API documentation in English?

    Hi Guille, Sadly, I can't find any API document in English, but I can share what I found so far.

    For QQ, they provided a JS library for 3rd party use.

    Some developer in China extracted the function getVideoSnap() form this library to get the thumbnail URL:

    getVideoSnap = function(vid) {
    var c, d, e = 1e8;
    for (var g = 4294967296, h = 0, i = 0; i < vid.length; i++) {
    var j = vid.charCodeAt(i);
    h = 32 * h + h + j,
    h >= g && (h %= g)
    }
    d = h % e;
    return c = "http://vpic.video.qq.com/"+d+"/"+vid+".png";
    }

    All URL format with example FYR.

    https://v.qq.com/x/cover/{cid}/{vid}.html
    https://v.qq.com/x/cover/8jnnyshzame1k0h/r0513rpuuq0.html
    getVideoSnap("r0513rpuuq0")

    https://v.qq.com/x/page/{vid}.html
    https://v.qq.com/x/page/b0025y6jjfi.html
    getVideoSnap("b0025y6jjfi")

    https://v.qq.com/iframe/player.html?vid={vid}
    https://v.qq.com/iframe/player.html?vid=x002573we82
    getVideoSnap("x002573we82")

     

    For Youku, you should register an account and create a client key to use their API.

    and the video does not load in the mail. Please I need help.

    Hi Sthephany, if you want to add a video, we recommend using the dedicated feature. When using the HTML block, you will have some restrictions (see the full list here).
