Sending videos by e-mail makes sense especially in direct contact with customers. Do you want to introduce a new product to your customer or send a short video message for Christmas or a birthday? Then it's best to send it in a personal e-mail. You can easily embed your video in the text of your e-mail via a link. We'll show you how to do it.
1. generate a video link to avoid large attachments. Here's how:
2. do not include the link as a "raw link".
Links such as https://dynamic-video.de/videos/1000060103HdPJwEQ4gV/100006010357e48eccc2d1d9c19cf34807bf1fd39aaz1Xl0Bg.mp4 do not look very nice. Therefore, use the function of your e-mail program to put the video link cleverly behind a text . In most e-mail programs, such as Outlook, you have to mark the words that should be clickable and then right-click to open the "Link" option or "Hyperlink" in Apple Mail. There you can insert your video link. Attention: Not every email program has the same name for this option, sometimes you will only find a 🔗 symbol in your menu bar.
3. alternatively, you can insert your link behind a thumbnail.
For example, take a screenshot of the first second of your video and paste the screenshot as an image into your email. Afterwards, you can use the method described above to include your link "behind the image" to make the preview image clickable.
With most e-mail programs, this works according to the same pattern:
→ Your video has now been embedded in the selected text.
Yes, you have three options to do that:
Videos can be sent as email attachments up to a size of 25MB with many providers. Sometimes even 32MB are possible. If the video is too large for the attachment, a cloud solution is more suitable.
