How to add Ziggeo to Formsite
How it works
The steps to do this are very simple. They consist of getting the code from our side and adding it to Formsite.
The setup could be made of several sections:
- Enable iframe embeds for player
- Prepare your Ziggeo code
- Add the code into Formsite form
Turn on iframe embeds for player
This step is optional however will open many options to you so we recommend it done first. It is done only once per application and it is very easy to do.
One of such benefits is that it will allow you to share the video link with others directly or third party services.
You can see the steps on how to do it on the following link: How to enable iframe / oEmbeds.

Get your Ziggeo codes
This is the entire code you would use:
If you are asking yourself if it is just that simple, the answer is YES! We made the integration as simple as possible so that you can quickly and easily add it to your Formsite forms.
The only manual step is to replace
APPLICATION_TOKEN with your application token to be used. Once you do replace it, this is completely prepared code ready to be used.
Add the Ziggeo code to Formsite form
- Open the form to edit it in Formsite.
- Add a
Custom Codefield to your form (usually found under Formatting Items) and have it as first field on your form.
- Into the Custom Code field paste your code that you prepared in steps above.
- This is now a single place you need to update if you want to change your app token or want to add some additional option later on (such as for screen recording or auth tokens for example).
That is it, your form is ready to have the embeddings added to it, which is described in next section.
Add embeddings to your Formsite form
While above section should only be done once, this section is to be taken as many times as there are embeddings you want to be present on your form.
- Scroll to the place where you want your embedding to be (video recorder for example)
Short Answerfield (usually under Common Items) into this location
- Now into the
PLACEHOLDERtext of this field you should add one of the following:
ziggeovideorecorder- to create recorder
ziggeovideoplayer VIDEO_TOKEN- to create a player, with the VIDEO_TOKEN being replaced with the actual video token to be played
You can create any number of recorders or players as you need.
Want to modify embeddings?
Do you have a desire to change how the embeddings look or function? That would require few more steps for you to take, however we made those steps very simple to take.
We have explained how to do this on the following page.
