An embedded code is a piece of content from an outside website that's placed directly into your Ning Network, just as it appears on the external website.

This can be a video from a video hosting service like YouTube or Hulu, a game or application that adds a new functionality, or even a media player from a different Ning Network. 

If you have embedded a video (or added an image) from another Ning network, please keep in mind that this code or content may be lost if that network removes it at any time.

Embed a widget

Widgets are added with an embed code that comes from the source of the content. For example, YouTube shows the "Embed" button for its videos below the player.  Click that button to reveal the full embed code, which you'll want to copy.

 

To embed the video, just copy the embed code and paste it into a text box or page on your Ning Network. 

Using the text editor, you can click on the HTML button to bring up the HTML view, and just paste your embed code in there directly:

You can also click on the video file icon to bring up a pop-up window to drop your embed code in:

When you have added the embed code and any text that you'd like to include along with it, click the "Save" button in the text box or the page you've added it to.

Widgets and loading times

Widgets can be very helpful because they're an easy way to add content and functionality. Widgets do, however, slow down the loading times of pages because they have to load in addition to the rest of your content.

The more complicated the widget, the more it will slow down your load time, and complex widgets like games and media players can be detrimental for this reason.

A lot of embeds I try don't work, like this: 

<iframe src="//content.jwplatform.com/players/1ToBzz7X-U4JsrINx.html" width="475" height="267" frameborder="0" scrolling="auto" allowfullscreen></iframe> 

There's 3 different ways right there and I can't see any of them

Sorry MT, it doesn't look like Ning accepts a JWPlayer embed code.  If you have a video you'd like to share feel free to post the title and link.
