Step 1: Pick your perfect video

First things first, find or create that perfect video.

It could be anything from a how-to guide, a product review, or just something fun that aligns with your brand’s vibe. The key here is choosing a video that adds value to your site and speaks to your audience.

Step 2: Grab the video URL

Got a YouTube video in mind?

Simply head over to the video, click on the ‘Share‘ button below it, and copy the URL. This link is essential to embed videos in Canva.

Step 3: Let the embedding begin

Now, with your Canva website or design open, follow these steps:

  1. Paste the URL directly into your Canva design by using the Canva keyboard shortcut to paste, the ctrl + “V” (or for Mac, command and the letter V).
  2. Marval at how easy that was!
  3. Publish your Canva website

Step 4: Make it blend in

Adjust its size, maybe add a border, and place it where it complements your Canva website or design’s look and feel. It’s all about making your design as engaging and beautiful as possible.

After you’ve got your video in place, take a moment to ensure it looks right on both the desktop and mobile previews.
