You can use external video files for on demand and automated webinars. In this article, we explain which type of video files you can use and how to insert them correctly.

Click on the webinar > 'Edit webinar' > 'Webinar'.


If you want to use YouTube videos, you can enter the video URL.

This URL will look a little something like this:

The xxx part is different for each individual video.

The YouTube video has to be published as 'Public' or 'Hidden' (found under 'Basic information'). A hidden video isn't pubicly available but can be played in WebinarGeek. Additionally, video embeds have to be enabled. (under 'Distribution options' > 'Allow embeds').


At its core, every MP4 video can be imported as long as it's publicly available. We currently automatically check if 'mp4' occurs somewhere in the link, so please keep note of that.

Please verify with your hosting provider or hosting service whether sufficient capacity is available to stream your video file to the expected number of (simultaneous) viewers.

Uploaded video

To use an uploaded video, press 'Videos' in the main menu and then '+ New Video'. You're provided with the option to create a recording through a live webinar or to upload a file.

Press 'Upload' and then 'Select a video file' to select the file on your computer. The following file types can be used: .mp4, .m4v, .mov, .qt, .mpg, .mpeg, .mpv, .wmv, .avi, .mkv, .flv, .webm

The maximum size for the files is 5 GB.
