How to embed a YouTube/Vimeo link to Showell

For example: If you click an embedded video link in Showell App, only the video itself (not the whole YouTube page) will open inside Showell. This means quicker opening and faster playback time!

💡Note:

If you are using Showell Online, Weblinks (e.g. video player links) will not open inside the app itself (you will be asked to open the page in a separate browser tab)

For this reason, using embedded links for esp. videos, is recommended - seeing as it opens only the video itself.
