How to add a Video to your Event
If you have video content for your races, why not add it onto your eventrac page to help potential entrants get a feel for what taking part in your event is like and also give current entrants a reminder of what to look forward to. We have made it straightforward to add your videos from popular platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo. These videos will appear on your event listing page under the 'Video' tab and will play inside a window on the page, making the transition from wathcing to entering seamless.
On your event page you will see a 'Video' tab, click here to see if you have any live videos, if you don't or you want to update them, let's get started!
Bring up your organiser dashboard and click on the race you wish to add the video to, in this case we are selecting 'Weybridge 10k'
Just click on 'Video'
Just click 'Add New Video'
All of these fields labeled below will need to be actioned.
(Skip to step 11 if you are using Vimeo)
Go to the YouTube video you wish to use and click the 'Share' button.
Ignore this URL that shows and click 'Embed'
Now you can add your title (1) URL (2) and confirm you can display this video as part of your event (3)
Just like YouTube, you will need to click on the 'Share' button.
Make sure you grab the following URL, this is located towards the bottom of the code and starts with https:// and includes the vimeo.com link and an ID number, in this case '1349369'
(Now return to Step 9)
