Adding content via URL
There are two options that allow you to upload videos and any other files from the web directly to your boards:
- Click the Upload button on the main toolbar and choose Upload via URL.
- A new tab will open, where you will be able to paste a direct URL link to any file from the web, such as a YouTube or Vimeo video.
- Click Ok to add the video.
Private videos cannot be added to the boards. You can only upload videos from public channels on the YouTube and Vimeo platforms.

Uploading a web file on a board using a URL link
To watch a video, double-click on the Play icon (the added file won't autoplay). You will also be able to go to the Source page and use other functions in the context menu.

You can fast-forward a video added to your RealtimeBoard, as well as add subtitles and change the video quality — managing the uploaded videos directly from your boards has finally come true.
If you post a link to a file directly on a board (using the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V shortcuts), it will upload the file with a preview:

To simply paste the URL link on a board with no transformations made, use the Text tool to copy the link into it:
