Adding video to your press releases will enrich your message and can increase both open and click-through rates. You can easily create emails featuring video as poster in PressWeb.
Adding video as poster works the same way as uploading and setting poster image.
1. Upload video as related media
Go to the second tab - related media - and upload a video file by choosing Video in the drop down menu.
2. Set uploaded video as poster
Select the video you would like to display as poster by clicking the settings icon, choosing to 'Update'.
Activate the 'Poster' button and click 'Update'. Upon updating, the video will be displayed as poster in your email and can be played in the press room (it can not be played in the actual email). If you also want the video to be available for download, activate 'Visible on PressWeb'.
3. Set poster image
Upon uploading a video a thumbnail is automatically grabbed from the video file and displayed as poster image. If you want to select your own image you upload the image file to the 'Related media' tab. Set the uploaded image as 'Poster' and 'Save'.
