You can find the iframe code below. Be sure to adjust the WIDTH HERE and HEIGHT HERE values to correspond with the recommended dimensions shown on your template's video box.

<iframe width="WIDTH HERE" height="HEIGHT HERE" src="YOUR URL HERE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Please note that the video dimensions will be displayed based on the dimensions at which it was rendered. Therefore, if it's smaller than the dimensions of the video placeholder, a black border will appear around it. For best results, render your video file at a larger resolution.
