It can be surprisingly difficult to find a free, online way to create and host a video to embed in your website. But Kapwing is here to simplify this process. In a few clicks, you'll be able to create an embeddable iFrame code snippet that will host your video and can be copied into your website for free.
Upload your video, export, and embed! Kapwing makes it simple to create and embed a video on any website. Squarespace, Medium, Ghost, Shopify, and any other CMS that supports custom Embed code will let you insert the Kapwing video player. After uploading your video, Kapwing gives you copy-paste embed code or a cloud URL to use as the src, the location of an external media content, for an HTML video object.
To embed a video on your website, upload it to Kapwing, make any edits you want, then “Export.” After processing, click “Embed” to copy the embed code needed to put the video directly into your HTML code. Kapwing gives you the exact website code needed to embed the video. You don't even need to sign in to host your video on our website. Kapwing is the fastest way to get your video online for free.
Unlike other video hosting sites, you can make edits to the video without updating the URL. This is perfect when you have dynamic elements of the video that you want to update, like a watermark, price tag, date, or discount code. After re-editing, the embedded video will update so that you don't have to change anything in the code.
For a better viewing experience, it is better to embed videos. Embedding videos will allow viewers to watch the video on your website, blog, powerpoint, or email without navigating away from the current view.
Linking videos are easier than uploading videos directly (which requires downloading media to your device and re-uploading it) or configuring an embed option when sharing on social media channels. However, keep in mind that linking a video will redirect your user to where the video is hosted.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
