Easy Steps: Add Video to Google Docs

Google Docs is an incredible tool and using it to create content is easy and efficient. However, when it comes to adding videos to your document, some people might find it confusing.

In this blog post, we’ll show you how to add a video to Google Docs so you can create engaging and interactive content that your audience will love.

Step 1: Find Your Video

Before you can add a video to Google Docs, you need to have the video you want to use. You can create it yourself or download a relevant video from a reliable source.

Step 2: Upload Your Video to Google Drive

Once you have your video, you need to upload it to Google Drive. This is a necessary step because Google Docs cannot directly support video upload, but they do offer some extensions.

To upload your video, go to your Google Drive and create a new folder to store the video. Drag and drop your video file into the folder you just created.

Step 3: Get the Shareable Link

Google Drive makes it easy to share your files or videos, and this feature is what will make it possible to add your video to Google Docs.

To get a shareable link, go to your Google Drive and right-click on the video file you just uploaded. Select “Get shareable link” in the menu that pops up. To ensure that anyone with access to the document can view the video, make sure the visibility setting is set to “Anyone with the link can view,” and then copy the link.

Step 4: Embed Your Video in Google Docs

Now, it’s time to embed your video in your Google Doc.

First, create a new Google Doc or open up one you’ve already started. Click whether you would like to insert the video inline, wrap text around it or break up the text by positioning the video within a line there, and then position your cursor where you want the video to appear in your document.

Next, go to the top menu and select “Insert,” then “Drawing.” When the Drawing dialog box opens, go to the top menu and select “Image,” then “Upload from computer,” and select Add the video link that you grabbed earlier. Your video file will then appear in your Google Docs document, and you can resize it as needed.

Step 5: Publish and Share

Once the video is in your Google Doc, it’s important to share it with your intended audience. You can publish the document and send a link to whomever you’d like to share it with. To do this, click on “File” in the top left corner and select “Publish to the web” from the dropdown menu. The published version of your document will open in a new tab, and you can copy the URL to share it.

Tips for Successful Video Embedding

– Keep in mind the size of your video and adjust it accordingly to fit the document’s layout and design
– Be sure that the link you’re using is shareable, and that anyone with access to the link can view the content
– Avoid resizing a video embedded in your Google Doc, as it may result in a distorted or blurry image
– Use videos to improve engagement and make a point, not to fill unused space within the document
– Train yourself on how to remove or replace the embedded videos when necessary.

By following these simple steps and tips, you can now confidently add videos to Google Docs, creating dynamic and engaging content for your audience.
