If you're getting a "URL is invalid" message when you try to upload your Vimeo or Youtube video, not to worry. There's a simple explanation. The video URL uploader accepts video inks in a specific format- you need to modify your video's . URL to the proper format see how below:
Determine your video to Vimeo's ID, go to the video's page and look for the numbers that come after the slash (/).
Underlined in red is the video ID. The Strikingly video background upload accepts vimeo URLs in the following formats:
In the following examples, (*) represents the name of the channel and (XXXXXXX), the video ID.
- vimeo.com/ XXXXXXX (This is the most prefered and common video URL)
- vimeo.com/channels/*/ XXXXXXX
- vimeo.com/groups/*/videos/ XXXXXXX
Your Youtube video's ID is the sequence of letters and numbers after "v ="
eg video URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-G59dzN-zo
the code after v = is the video ID In this example: Q-G59dzN-ZO
Please revise your video's URL into this format again ( XXXXXXX) represents the video ID.
