Is there a way to embed a video into a Copilot outreach? I know we can add an image or a link to a video, but I am hoping to directly embed a video into an email. Is this possible?

I highly doubt the template builder retains embedded HTML5 videos. Interesting to note that, due to spam and security reasons, both Gmail and Outlook still don't support embedded videos, so most of the recipients would have to fall back to image + link.

Hi Ky - Also, from a best practice standpoint, I think an embedded video would be a pretty heavy send. It is much more light on the recipient's inbox to give the impression the video is embedded with the screenshot with a link. That way the video is housed and streaming from another place.

We actually use Vidyard to record videos and then link them to a button in the outreach.

Happy to talk with anyone about how to use Vidyard in your outreaches.
