Video embed for sites based on China (Youku)

There are instances when we want to add a video on our site, but it's blocked by China's great firewall. No need to worry; you may use Youku as a replacement for YouTube or Vimeo. You can embed a Youku video using the "Big Media" or "Gallery" section. Here's how you do it. 

Step 1: Get the link from Youko

  1. Go to the Youku video that you want to embed on your site.

  2. Get the link to the video that you want to show. Example link:

    Get the highlighted part of the URL like the one on the screenshot below:


Step 2: Add it to your site

  1. Go to your site editor and click on the "Add New Section" button in the left panel. 


  2. From the left panel, look for the "Big Media" section from the list. 


  3. Once the section is added, click on the Big Media section to edit. 


  4. Click on the "Video" tab and paste the URL link of your Youku video. Don't forget to click "Save".
