Persistent Links to Library Resources: Embedding/Linking Videos

Use a persistent link to direct MTSU users to an online article, ebook, ejournal or library database.

Streaming Videos

The library subscribes to many streaming video collections. Below are some of the most popular,  but most of the others will also offer similar linking and/or embedding options.

Embed a Kanopy Video

How to embed video from Kanopy

1.  Find the video you wish to embed and go to that video's page

2.  On the video page, click the EMBED button to get the code.


3.  Copy / paste the code to embed the video into D2L* or a Web page

*Note:  The current best practice for sharing videos inside D2L is to use the URL or permanent link rather than the embed code. There is a confict between the secure content of D2L and the non-secure video thus preventing videos from playing unless browser security settings are changed.

Link to a Kanopy Video

1.  Display the video you wish to link to.

2.  Click on the "Share" button and copy the link. 

3.  Paste the URL into your web page or content in D2L.

Linking or embedding Docuseek2 videos

To add content from Docuseek2 to D2L or other web sources:

  • Find the title you want to share.
  • Click the Link TO /EMBED button found on the screen at the top right

A window with code for embedding the video as well as a permanent link to the video is displayed.  Sometimes, linking can be the simplest choice, but it's a personal preference.
