Have you ever had one of those moments where you think to yourself, “How did I not know this before?” In one of our recent webinars, we uncover some of our favorite features of Research Suite to help you make a bigger impact in your research.


Today we’re highlighting one of our favorite tips from the webinar — embedding a video into your survey. This feature is helpful for many cases, including embedding demos of your product, ad campaigns and psychological studies that incorporate videos. You don’t need a QuickTime extension or a plugin; Research Suite allows you to pull a video from YouTube and set it to play automatically in just a few easy steps:


Step 1:


Open the video in YouTube. Underneath the video frame, you’ll see a “share” button. When you click on it, a few sharing options will appear.


Step 2:


Click the “embed” option to generate an HTML iframe code that will allow you to embed the video into your survey. Copy the code.


Step 3:


In your survey editor, select the question you would like to add the video to. Click “HTML View” and paste in the iframe code you copied from YouTube.



Step 4:


To make your video autoplay, add “?autoplay=1” to the end of the video URL in the iframe code, as shown below:



Step 5:


Preview your survey to be sure your video is displaying properly.
