How can I embed CloudApp content on my help desk or website?

CloudApp makes it easy to capture, share, and embed content directly to a website, help desk, or any other place that will support embedding.

To get the embed link, click the CloudApp menu bar icon, select the '...' next to a drop you'd like to embed, and select 'Copy Direct Link'. You'll get a link that looks like: https://cl.ly/0J112q3x110y/Image%202016-09-27%20at%208.53.33%20PM.png

Once you've got the direct link, here's 3 example types of content you can embed with CloudApp:

  1. Screenshots
  2. GIFs
  3. HD Videos

Screenshots

The first example, previewed below, is a screenshot that has been annotated. 

To embed this on your own web page, you'll want to take your direct link and replace the example code I've shared below:

<img src="CLOUDAPP DIRECT LINK HERE" alt="" width="647" height="247" />"

For example:

<img src="https://cl.ly/1Z0t1J1r2P0X/Image%202016-09-27%20at%201.15.30%20PM.png" alt="" width="647" height="247" />"

Gifs

The second example, previewed below, is a short GIF showing how to reset your password (great for customer support!) 

To embed this on your own web page, you'll want to take your direct link and replace the example code I've shared below:

<img src="CLOUDAPP DIRECT LINK HERE" />

For example:

<img src="https://d3omwy4q2qio9v.cloudfront.net/items/1X2M1w0V2S1g0g1y3k1y/Screen%20Recording%202016-09-27%20at%2012.12%20PM.gif" />

Videos

The third, and final example, previewed below, is an HD Video with sound. 

To embed this on your own web page, you'll want to take your direct link and replace the example code I've shared below: <video src="<strong>CLOUDAPP DIRECT LINK HERE</strong>" controls="controls">

For example: <video src="https://cl.ly/3A1h1V3U073g/Screen%20Recording%202016-09-27%20at%2001.30%20PM.mov" controls="controls">
