Embed Code Usage Guide

Janet Dragojevic edited this page · 23 revisions

To embed a video from Amara:

Step 1: paste this in your document somewhere (closest to the closing body tag is preferable):

<script type="text/javascript" src=''>

Step 2: paste this inside your HTML body where you want to include the videos, with the video URL, height, and width of your choosing:

<div class="amara-embed" data-height="480px" data-width="854px" data-url="">

You can set the following options:

  • Hide the menu item to order subtitles by adding data-hide-order="true" in the previous tag.
  • Set the initial active subtitle language by adding data-initial-language="language" in the previous tag, where language is the language code, such as "en" for English.
  • Display the subtitles by default by adding data-show-subtitles-default="true" in the previous tag.
  • Display the transcript by default by adding data-show-transcript-default="true" in the previous tag.

The subtitles and transcript will display as they do on the Amara video pages and in the amara embedder example
