Test: Blip TV Video

Using a link to embed a Blip TV video

To embed a Blip TV video, view the video on the original site and click the 'Embed/Link' icon in the videos toolbar, then click the 'Copy Embed Code'.

In a text editor paste the code you just copied. It will look something like this:

<embed src=""
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="300"
allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed>

From the embed code, copy the value of the 'src':


Back in Spring, while editing a page enter some text in the place where you want the video to be embed:

ie. Embedded Video

Select the text you just entered and click the 'Insert/Edit Link' icon in the toolbar to create a link.

Paste the url copied previously into the 'Link URL' field and click 'Insert'.

Save the page.

When you view the page in your browser, the video will be embedded.
