Adding the Featured Video view pane to a homepage follows the same process as adding an event or news view pane. You can filter by category and customize how many videos show in the list.
The view pane is called: View: V1 - Listing page for multiple videos: Video teaser list
See Customizing Content Layout for more information on how to add view panes.
For a public list of your videos, go to https://www.uoguelph.ca/yoursite/videos. You will have the ability to filter these video by category - similar to views for news and events.
To do this, you would first need to create terms in the Video taxonomy category and select the
category when you create a video.
To embed a video within a custom block or content type such as a basic page or event, you can use the embed code that is automatically generated by the UG Video feauture. The embed code will appear beneath a video once you've created it.
Or, you can view the embed code for each video on your site at the following link: https://www.uoguelph.ca/yoursite/videos-embed
Note: You will only be able to view the embed code if you are logged in and have editing privileges.
