If you're new to Zype or want to learn and discover features you haven't used yet, Zype has built step-by-step tutorials to help you start your learning path. In this tutorial, we provide you with the tools to publish a video to your website using Zype's embed codes. This take very little time to accomplish and does not require any technical resources. Just follow the guide, copy and paste the embed code to your website, and begin engaging with your audience! 


If you are brand new to the platform, you'll see a welcome screen on your first login. The welcome screen provides an overview to Zype, our goals, and an introduction to the tutorial to publish a video to your website. To start the tutorial, just click the "Get Started" button on the bottom of the page.


Uploading a Video

The first step in the tutorial is to upload a video from your local files into your library. To start, click "Upload Video" button under the "Video Upload" section.

Metadata is an important part of organizing your videos, as well as helping your audience discover your content. There are several metadata options to add to your videos, but the basic fields Zype encourages you to have are a title and a short description. To get started click "Add Metadata" in the "Metadata Update" section.
