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='https://amara.org/embedder-iframe'>

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="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CKwCfLUwj4">

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-code]" 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.
  • Control the max width of the embedder by adding data-width="XXpx" in the previous tag. Note that the embedder is responsive -- it will resize itself to fit inside its container width.

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