The destination is where all your imported videos will be stored. This is the same as the collection. Select a collection from the list, and we will process and keep your videos in the selected collection.

Import Progress

Import Progress

Sit back and relax. We will do all the heavy work to import and process videos for you.

You will find all your Imported Videos in the selected collection.

Update Embed Code

All your videos are imported to Gumlet. If you use Vimeo Embeds, you must replace your URL prefix with a Gumlet prefix to support the same URL structure to play your videos directly.

Vimeo Embed URL looks like https://player.vimeo.com/video/831802811

Replace https://player.vimeo.com/video with https://vimeo.gumlet.io/embed

Your new URL will be like https://vimeo.gumlet.io/embed/831802811

Happy Streaming.
