Embeddables Roundup - What you Can Do with Zype’s Embed Services

By Chris Smith on September 12, 2017

Having the power to distribute your video to everywhere your viewers are—from branded apps to your website—is one of the biggest advantages of going OTT. The easiest way to engage directly with your audience is to publish your on-demand and live video content directly onto your website. You own and operate your website, giving you control over your content, revenue and messaging. Plus, embedding video on your website increases discoverability, enabling you to attract and convert more subscribers. Lastly, website integrations can be deployed immediately, whereas app development can sometimes take several weeks or longer depending on marketplace approval.

It’s as simple as copying and pasting. Unlike other embed web players from YouTube or Vimeo, Zype’s embed services are powerful tools to transform your website into a fully owned and operated video streaming destination for your audience.

Zype’s embeddables service goes beyond simply adding a video to a webpage. Zype offers several different types of embeds that allow content owners to harness the power of the zype platform directly on their website, from generating subscription, purchase, and rental revenue, to managing consumer accounts, and more.

All videos and playlists hosted by Zype have easy to use embed codes designed to be dropped into a web page, wherever you need them, so your viewers can play videos directly on your desktop and mobile site. Using an embed code is easy; it’s as simple as clicking the ‘Copy to Clipboard’ button and pasting the snippet where you’d like your video to be displayed.


This feature makes it easy to get up and running quickly with monetized videos on your site. You always have the option to include a paywall, for any type of monetization including subscription, purchase, and rental.
