Cool GMail Trick – Embed a Video in Gmail and Make The Video Open Up in a Light Box.
Last week I accidentally stumbled upon a cool new feature that Google rolled out, so I thought I would create a short video tutorial explaining my findings. In this three minute video I will show you how to take a Youtube video, embed it, create a screen shot with a hyperlink (within your message) at which point Gmail will open it as a full screen lightbox when the user clicks on it. You will notice that I use Snagit for screen captures, which in-itself is also an amazing tool.
The video referenced in this tutorial is an amazing recreation of Michael Jacksons, “Billy Jean“, covered by our very own, John Stringer.
