Embedded Media

Notes about Embedded Media

Because embedded media refer to assets outside of your website, your item may load with a slight delay from the rest of the page. Additionally, if the vendor experiences a service outage, your embedded item(s) may also be affected.

Some browsers may also restrict embedded media depending on user settings. Please test your embedded media in a privately published post/page in different browsers before publishing live.
