Customize Embed Settings

When copying an embed code in Warpwire in preparation for sharing a video on an external site, you can make use of our custom embed options to create the playback experience you want.

You can use the Start and End timestamps to adjust the point at which your video will play and stop.

You can check the autoplay box if you'd like your video to begin playing automatically.

Check the 'Hide Share' box if you want your video to embed without a link to sharing options.

Check the 'Hide Title' box if you want your video to embed without It's title bar.

Edit Embed URLs Manually

While the Warpwire sharing interface allows you to select many custom embed settings, these settings (and some others!) can be achieved by editing the embed URL yourself. What follows are instructions for that method.

  • To adjust a video's start time, append ?start= to the URL, with your desired time code (in seconds):

    https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?start=10

  • To adjust both start and end time, append ?start= and end= with time codes in seconds:

    https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?start=10&end=30

  • To have a video autoplay, append autoplay=true, for example:

    https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?autoplay=true

  • When embedding a video, you can remove the title with the parameter ?title=, like this:

    <iframe height="360" width="640" src="https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?title=false" frameborder="0" scrolling="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  • You can also remove the share menu (Again, in the embedded context) using ?share=:

    <iframe height="360" width="640" src="https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?share=false" frameborder="0" scrolling="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  • Or, you could remove the entire top menu, both title and sharing (Again, in the embedded context) using ?info=:

    <iframe height="360" width="640" src="https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?info=0" frameborder="0" scrolling="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  • You can turn captions on by default using ?cc_load_policy=1. When set to '1' captions will be shown by default. Defaults to English language captions if multiple are available.

    <iframe height="360" width="640" src="https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?cc_load_policy=1" frameborder="0" scrolling="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  • You can toggle the visibility of the video scrub bar using ?seekable=. When set to '1' the scrub bar will be shown. Set to '0', the player will not display the video scrub bar (users will not be able to seek).

    <iframe height="360" width="640" src="https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?seekable=0" frameborder="0" scrolling="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  • You can toggle the visibility of the video player's controls using ?controls=. When set to '1' the controls will be visible. Set to '0', the player controls will be hidden.
