    Watch an Embedded Video
  • 0:03
    Okay, I totally realize that watching
  • 0:06
    a video about watching videos is super meta.
  • 0:10
    But bear with me for a second.
  • 0:12
    In this super short video,
  • 0:13
    I want to take a moment to show
  • 0:14
    how embedded videos within a tutorial work.
  • 0:18
    We'll look at how to locate an embedded video,
  • 0:20
    play it, and return to the tutorial
  • 0:22
    when you're done watching.
  • 0:24
    Let's go ahead and get started.
  • 0:25
    Once you've navigated to a tutorial on our site,
  • 0:28
    as you're browsing through the contents of the tutorial,
  • 0:30
    you may notice one, or more, embedded video.
  • 0:34
    You can recognize an embedded video
  • 0:35
    because it'll have a thumbnail,
  • 0:37
    and the thumbnail will have a Play icon on it.
  • 0:39
    And then there should be a short description
  • 0:41
    of the contents of that video.
  • 0:42
    If you'd like to watch a video, simply click the thumbnail.
  • 0:46
    It'll expand to the full player and you can go ahead
  • 0:49
    and watch as much or little of the video as you'd like.
  • 0:52
    Once you're done, you can return to the tutorial
  • 0:54
    by collapsing the video using the X icon
  • 0:57
    in the upper right corner.
  • 0:59
    That'll minimize the video player and allow you
  • 1:01
    to return to where you left off within the tutorial.
  • 1:04
    Now any tutorial could have one or more embedded videos,
  • 1:08
    depending on what's necessary to convey
  • 1:10
    the content of that material.
  • 1:13
    And that's it.
  • 1:14
    Pretty easy, right?
  • 1:15
    In this tutorial, we located and watched an embedded video
  • 1:19
    and then learned how to close them as well,
  • 1:21
    which is something that you can do right now
  • 1:23
    since this video is over.
  • 1:26
    Go ahead and click the Close icon in the top right corner
  • 1:28
    next to the player and return to reading the tutorial.
