Why should I add the video type?

Adding video type is ultimately key for your brand content analysis and optimisation. Moreover, e-tailers use a visible type indicator to guide their visitors through the available video content.

And importantly, more and more e-tailers require the type indication on videos in the context of their content curation process.

How did Autheos come up with the Video Types?

We work with a number of content creation partners, focussed on video marketing. We used their input to create our list. But, if you have any comments or suggestions, do shoot us an e-mail at info@autheos.com!

Embedding Autheos

Embed code?

First, you will want to add the following line to the  section of your website. That adds the script to your page so that you can start using the embed functionality.

<script src="//cdn.autheos.com/embedcode/latest/autheos-embedcode.min.js">script>

After that, you can start using the code anywhere inside the  element. That looks like the following:

<script>new Autheos().embed({ ean: '1234567890123' });script>

And that’s it. Read ahead to learn how to specify an EAN and language, the placement of the play button and even how to customize or skip the button entirely.

Magento or other plug ins?

At this moment in time we do not have any special plug ins, nevertheless our simple javascript embed code is compatible with every type of webshop front end.

Mobile app?

We do not have a mobile app to upload videos.
