HD Video Button Image

HD Video – requires Pro plan or better.  You can use the HD Video element to upload video directly to your website and display it in an unbranded video player. This looks more professional and can be less distracting for your visitors than embedding video from a branded website(s).

Weebly Audio Button Image

Audio – requires Pro plan or better.  The audio player element allows you to easily add an MP3 file directly to your website.

Scribd Document Button Image

Scribd Document – The document uploader is empowered by Scribd.  The Document drag and drop features allows you to upload and display documents on your site for easy online viewing.

Weebly Youtube Button Image

Youtube – Drag and drop this option to add any Youtube videos you would like to display on your site.  The video will attach where you drag it, providing options to resize from small to large (or auto) if necessary.

Weebly Flash Button Image

Flash  – Upload a flash SWF file to your website using this feature.  Drag and dropping will create a window for you to customize and upload your file.  It’s worth noting, if the file does not play, that usually means the SWF file is not basic enough to use with Weebly. Unfortunately, this means you will need to use a different file format.

Hostwinds File Button Image

File – Simply put, this feature allows you to upload a file to your website providing users the ability to download the files onto their local machines directly from your site.
