We support a number of upload sources at Waybook including YouTube, Google Drive, Vimeo, Loom and Wistia.

Embedding videos can make the steps of your documents more engaging, help to demonstrate key practices within your business and help to condense big chunks of text into easy to digest videos.

The process for embedding videos in your Waybook steps varies depending on the source you're using - we'll cover each process in this article.

If you have any questions or difficulty following any of the steps below please reach out to the support team and we'll be happy to help 🙂
