Video & Audio
Adding Video, Audio, Maps & More!
You can easily add any embeddable content from around the web to Salon.io by copying and pasting the embed code of the content you want to add into a textbox.
Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, Google maps or anything else that embeds!
See below for some more detailed / technical information on how to affect the way your embedded content is displayed.
Using URL parameters to affect embedded content
Whether you're embedding content from Vimeo, Youtube, Google Maps or anywhere else on the web, most sites have parameters in their embed URLs (when using an iframe embed) that can affect the way the content is displayed.
For example if I just copy this youtube embed code into a text box:
It will look like this:
But if I copy the following:
It will look like this (play the videos to better see the difference in appearance):
This is because I added several parameters to the URL of the embedded video to hide the video title, the youtube branding, the controls and the annotations.
The parameters are generally attached to the end of a URL with the initial parameter beginning with a ? and each following parameter being attached with an & so taking the format http://www.site.com/thing?param=1¶mtwo=1 .
It would take a great deal of writing to explain each and every parameter for every site but luckily most have great documentation on what each of theirs are and how to use them.
