Embedding video via Source
Source option provides formatted HTML Video element, with predefined source elements (that's where the name comes from) in WEBM, MP4 and OGV video format (URL-based API will create on-the-fly these specific versions of video if needed).
You can copy & paste source html code to your website page and video will be played with the default browser player. This is a way to embed your videos without the use of Publitio Player. You can also use just the video URL (mp4 or webm extension) to integrate with other video players & to use Publitio only as a video hosting & streaming solution.
Embedding video with Publitio Player via Iframe
Other common & widely used way for embedding video is via Iframe. Iframe html code will have by default responsive behaviour & will use Embed URL as it's src and will play your video with Publitio Player (yes!)
This is our recommended way for embedding of your videos as Iframe will inherit any changes you make to the player setup or to the video file (like changing the poster image, watermarking, etc.)
