Videos

Include videos from Oracle Content and Experience to add motion and visual engagement to the page.

Oracle Content and Experience offers several options to add video to a page. You can embed YouTube Videos hosted on their site, or you can add a video stored, managed, and delivered from Oracle Content and Experience to take advantage of the automatic transcoding and optimized streaming Video Plus offers. This is useful when sites are served to multiple devices with different capabilities. If your system administrator has not enabled Video Plus then standard video is an option.

To use videos hosted by YouTube, see YouTube Videos.
