Adding videos to workouts
How to add a video / live stream from YouTube, Vimeo, or other platforms to your workouts.


Placing a video
(How to create a new workout?)

It's quite simple. We have to put a link/code to the video in the workout description:



A member will see it like this:



Note: the link/code should be in a new line

Like this:

Workout content
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxtfJ-cB70I
Workout content


And not like this::

Workout content https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxtfJ-cB70I

Available platforms

For live streams you can use any platform, the most popular are:

YouTube (In my opinion the best/the easiest for the beginning)

Advantages:
free
easy to use
live stream available
Disadvantages:
live streaming from the phone only when you have 1000 subscribers on your channel. If not, only from a computer.
a link to videos/live streams is not protected and can be seen by anyone

Vimeo

Advantages:
You can limit viewing video/live stream only to WodGuru - it can't be seen from any other places, a member can't share it with friends
Disadvantages:
Live stream is expensive - you need a premium subscription for a year, there is no possibility to buy it for a month

Facebook live

A popular option is live streams on Facebook, but we can't integrate it with WodGuru, because live streams can't be "pulled" from Facebook.

A solution may be inviting members to a Facebook group where we will share our live streams. In this case, we have to remember about revoking their access when their membership expires, which can be inconvenient.

Advantages:
Easy, free live stream
Disadvantages:
Cannot integrate with WodGuru, lots of manual work

Zoom

Zoom is a cool option for one on one sessions or meetings in small groups. Zoom also doesn't let to add the player directly to WodGuru, but you can share the link, so a member can easily join the meeting.

Advantages:
Free (but not sure if there are any limits)
Allows the coach to interact with members
Disadvantages:
Doesn't work well for a bigger groups
You can't insert the player into WodGuru, you can only share a link to the meeting
