Where are you trying to paste the code?

Here on the forum or a webpage?

Here on the forum you can only paste the share link to your video in the post.

I don't believe you can put a video in to Outlook email if that is what you a referring to as Outlook.

Most email clients do not play video. Even if you could get it in your email,  it's most likely your contacts would not be able to play/view it.

The best options are to

1. Just add a link to your video.

2. Add your video as a attachment.
The downside of this is file size limitations. Both sending and/or receiving.

3. This what I do. Take a snapshot of your video in the player and put it your email.

Example


Then hyperlink it to your screencast video.

When your contacts click on it ,  your video will open in their browser
for them to view.

If on a wordpress theme, your theme may be stripping out the code. Try using the html (text) tax in wordpress and wrap it in a <div>  </div> tag and see if that works,

Hi David,

Should there be any other code before the <div>  </div> tags?  Should it be hosted inside of a table? 


I have never seen anything this like this before. It is driving me nuts.

Not per say but your video may not be in the post/page like you want it or not look right without having some CSS tied to it.

It doesn't have to be in a table.
