An embedded Klip is one that integrates into an external website or host application in such a way that it appears seamless to the end-user. It allows you to share Klips inside and outside your organisation.

You can display multiple Klips by embedding multiple control instances within a host application or you can restrict embedding of a Klip to a specific domain.

To embed a Klip, you must generate the embed code and copy the provided code into the body of an HTML page.

  2. On the top right of the Klip, select the Klip Menu icon.
