Using the Video Gizmo

You'll find the Video Gizmo located with the rest of the Gizmos in the GIZMO tab on the standard content editor toolbar.

Once you find the Video Gizmo, click once on the gizmo to "pick it up."  There is no need to click and hold/drag the gizmo.  Clicking on it once will "pick it up."

After you have picked up the Video Gizmo by clicking on it, you can put it anywhere in the current portfolio page by clicking once again to place it. The available places to put the image will be outlined in green.  Once you have placed it, you have two options.  You can add a video you have uploaded into your Files area or you can add a video from the internet.

If you want to add one of your personal videos, all you need to do is click on the thumbnail of the video that appears in the gizmo.
