google-slides-insert

Once you expand the “Insert” button list you will notice a lot of new possibilities, but we are interested in “video” feature. It will allow you to add a video from Google Drive, or from the Youtube platform. Also if you have found already the Youtube video which interests you, there is a possibility to paste an URL.

google-slides-insert-video-options

Let’s start with embedding Youtube video through a search on this platform.

Google-Slides-video-embed
As you see the embedding has ended successfully and it isn’t really hard. Once you want to paste the URL it is the exactly the same process but instead of searching, you paste your own link from Youtube.

Google-Slides-URL

The third option is a possibility to embed video in Google Slides through Google Drive. It is useful especially if you don’t have a Youtube video. Thanks to it you can share for example your own videos which you want to show the people who will see your presentation.

If you want to embed SoundCloud player on Facebook it isn’t really hard. At first, find the song which you want to share with people on Facebook. Once you have chosen at least one, go to the song and below it, you will notice a few buttons:

  • Like
  • Repost
  • Share
  • More

soundcloud-buttons

We are interested only in one. The “share” button is what we are looking for when we want to embed SoundCloud on Facebook.

soundcloud-share-button

After you click the button there will be displayed a special pop-up thanks to which you can choose the platform on which you want to embed your SoundCloud player and also the time on which the video should be started. Really comfortable option when you want to show others only a specific fragment of the song. In our case, we are going to choose a Facebook platform and let’s set a time at 0:55.

soundcloud-share-social-media

After you see things for your own preferences you will be finally redirected to the Facebook page, where you can choose to who you will share the embed SoundCloud player and type a little description. Technically it is the same as the normal post, but with embed SoundCloud. Once you are ready, press the “Post to Facebook” button

post-facebook

It is pretty much done, as you noticed the embedding isn’t perfect since the Facebook team disabled the possibility to embed SoundCloud player which you can watch directly on a Facebook website.

soundcloud-result

So it is more like sharing not embedding. Anyway if you want to embed SoundCloud player it is possible only in comments when you add “x” to the URL(example: soundcloudx.com/song). Check the GIF below to be sure how to do it.

Once you created the form you can notice a big “SEND” button. Click on it and there will be another pop-up on which you can notice a few interesting options.

Google-Form-Save

To embed Google Form you need to choose the third option. It generates you your own embed code which you will paste to your website. You can also set the properties of the form to fit your website’s template.

google-form-embed-code

Now paste the code and you should have already an embed Google Form on your website which works perfectly.

A really nice thing is that you don’t have to generate new embed code, you can just set the properties of your form by modifying the code which you have already copied. So if properties don’t really fit your website, change the “width” and “height” value in your code.

When finally we have a code, let’s head to the WordPress. Just choose the page where you want to embed your PDF and paste the embed code into the text editor of a WordPress website.

PDF-WORDPRESS

As you could have noticed we embed a PDF in WordPress but still, it doesn’t look too good, at least in my opinion it is too small and hard to read. The solution is pretty easy, in the text editor you can change the width and height values for your own preferences.

PDF-WORDPRESS-END

google-form-email-address
