How can I host and embed CloudApp content on my help desk, website, or ..anywhere?

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

How to get the embed code from any share page

You can copy the embed code directly from one of your CloudApp share pages. Choose the type of code you need: Web page, Iframe or email and copy it.

The email button can be used to embed your content into marketing email tools like Mailchimp,, etc.

How to get the embed code from the Mac App

You will need the latest version of our Mac app to follow the steps below:

1- Capture your screen (GIF, video, screenshot, image)

2- Go into your desktop CloudApp menu, and click on the ‘3 dots’ icon. Then click on ‘Copy Embed Code’.

3) Code is copied right away in your clipboard
