Uploading an Animoto Video to InSpired

 NOTE: This feature requires the StandardProfessional, or Enterprise version of myStratus Web.

Animoto videos have become a powerful tool for the professional photographer. Follow these steps to upload an Animoto video to your client's InSpiredByYou page:
  1. Open a session in Stratus and click New Animoto animoto_a_16.png on the Action tab of the ribbon.


  2. Add a Description of the video as you would like it to appear online.

  3. The Upload Date will indicate "Upload Pending" until the next InSpiredByYou data sync occurs. After the video has been uploaded, Stratus will automatically update the date.

  4. Copy and paste the Embed String from your prepared Animoto video.

    • Log in to your Animoto account and open the video.

    • Open the Sharing menu in the upper-right corner and select Embed Code.  


    • We recommend using Animoto's mobile friendly embed code option. To do this, click Advanced Options and check the Mobile Friendly box. This will modify the embed code that is displayed in the box.


    • Click Copy Code.
    • Back in Stratus, click the Embed String box and press Ctrl+V to paste the code you copied from Animoto.

  5. Click OK to close the online video window.
  6. Save the session and the video will be uploaded to the client's InSpiredByYou page during the next data sync. See also: Syncing Stratus and InSpired
