Customize Embed Settings

When copying an embed code in Warpwire in preparation for sharing a video or audio on an external site, you can make use of embed options to customize the playback experience. Note that these custom options apply to embed codes, not to direct share links.

Embed Code pane for media asset

Start and Stop Times

You can use the 'Start at' and 'Stop at' timestamps to adjust the point at which your embedded video or audio will play and stop.

Embed options, with custom start and stop times selected

Here's what that embed looks like:

Autoplay

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

Embed options, with autoplay checked

Because we'd rather not confront you with the sounds of a video without asking, we're not going to show to the autoplay embed here.

Share Button Visibility

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

Embed options, with 'Hide Share' box checked

Here's what that embed looks like:

Check the 'Hide Title' box if you want your video or audio to embed without its title bar.

Here's what that embed looks like:

Video Control Visibility

Check the 'Hide Controls' box if you want your video or audio to embed without its control bar.

Here's what that embed looks like:

Audio Only Embed

Check the 'Audio Only' box if you want your audio or video file to embed without the visual media shown in the player (read more about audio only player).

Here's what that embed looks like:

Interactive Transcript Visibility

Check the 'Interactive Transcript' box if you want your asset to embed with it's attached transcript visible to the right of the content (read more about interactive transcripts).

Embed options, with 'Interactive Transcript' checked

Here's what that embed looks like:

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 or audio asset 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 timecodes in seconds:

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

  • To have a video or audio asset 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" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; fullscreen;" 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" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; fullscreen;" 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" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; fullscreen;" 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" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; fullscreen;" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  • You can toggle the visibility of the player scrub bar using ?seekable=. When set to '1' the scrub bar will be shown. Set to '0', the player will not display the 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" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; fullscreen;" allowfullscreen></iframe>

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

    <iframe height="360" width="640" src="https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?controls=0" frameborder="0" scrolling="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; fullscreen;" allowfullscreen></iframe>

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

    <iframe height="94" width="640" src="https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?audio_only=1" frameborder="0" scrolling="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; fullscreen;" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  • You can toggle the visibility of the player's interactive transcript feature?interactive_transcript=. When set to '1' the transcript feature will be visible. Set to '0', the transcript feature will not appear.

    <iframe height="360" width="940" src="https://example.warpwire.com/w/c0IBAA/?interactive_transcript=1" frameborder="0" scrolling="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; fullscreen;" allowfullscreen></iframe>
