A complete guide on embedding Gumlet videos on your webpage.

Embedding videos processed by Gumlet is straightforward. Copy the embed code from the video collection or asset management page.

Gumlet embed code has the following structure.

<iframe width="1200" height="675" 
        src="https://play.gumlet.io/embed/{{asset_id}}" 
        title="Gumlet video player" 
        frameBorder="0" 
        allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; fullscreen">
</iframe>

Replace the {{asset_id}} in the src above with the asset id of the video you want to embed. The height and width mentioned in the above embed code are for representational purposes only; you shall change this property to fit your need for the best viewing experience.

Customize your embedded video by passing query parameters along with the URL.
