Has anyone successfully managed to embed a video in their newsletter please? Support are offering conflicting advice on this so I've not managed to successfully do it myself. I'd like guidance from someone who's actually managed it please. Thanks in advance.

Email programs cannot play videos within email.  So when you see a video "embedded" in a newsletter, what you're actually doing is including a screenshot of the video and using it as a link to the video elsewhere on the web, such as YouTube or Vimeo.   You can either do this screenshot/link manually, or if you're linking to YouTube, ConvertKit has an easy way to do that134.

When I asked about this, it was suggested to link a screen shot to the video. I was not able to embed the actual video into the newsletter
