Videos are a great way to showcase information and keep readers engaged on your community! The video embed tool makes it possible to quickly and easily add videos to an article page.

Videos can also be included in galleries and most other locations where images are supported. Videos that are under 400px wide will play in the media lightbox.


Note: If you are using VisualEditor, see Help:Videos for instructions.

  • When you are happy with the options, click "Add a video". The video will become a file in the wiki and will be inserted onto the page you are editing.
