Embed multiple videos

Videos are an excellent tool for adding to your online test or course, as they can help you share important information or make a quiz more interactive and engaging. With FlexiQuiz, you can embed various video clips to your quizzes in a choice of places such as:

  • Welcome screens.
  • All quiz questions.
  • Text/ Media pages.
  • Thank you, screens.
  • Quiz email invites.
  • Question feedback pages based on the wrong or correct answers.

Important! Currently, you cannot add a video to a live quiz.

There is no limit to the number of videos that you can embed in your online quiz. The videos will also look great on any device, such as mobile, tablet, or desktop.

This guide shows you how to embed a video from Vimeo or YouTube within your FlexiQuiz.

How to embed a video

To start, you will need to retrieve the embed code for the YouTube or Vimeo video that you would like to embed on your FlexiQuiz.

    Note! Videos cannot be set to autoplay when added to your quiz. When you add a video to FlexiQuiz, we only take the embed code to display it, ignoring the other buttons such as autoplay.

  7. To resize the image, you will need to change the width and height within the embed code. The example below shows the height and width of the code. embed code with height and width code highlighted
  8. Once the code is ready, click ok.

    The video is displayed within your question content. You can add text and other images to the page to form part pf your quiz question. If you need to delete the video, you will need to remove the whole question.
