Each video and audio file includes an embed code and public link that you can use for showing media in public websites. Located in the Sharing options for a video or audio file, public links and embed codes do not include comments. Additionally, public links and embed codes are not authenticated so they cannot track viewer data in Arc.

This lesson shows you how to get a link or embed code directly from the My Uploads page. However, when you own a medie file or a user has shared a media file with you, the link and code are also available when viewing media.

Notes:

  • Viewing public links and embed codes is an account permission. If you are not able to view the Links tab, your institution has restricted this feature to all users except Arc admins.
  • If you want to include comments when embedding media, you need to embed through the Arc LTI tool. Learn how to embed media in Canvas.
