When it comes time to deliver your valuable digital content to leads and customers, making it to the inbox is everything. In response to many inbox service providers (ISPs) interpreting file attachments as spam, Ontraport created File Manager — a tool that allows you to upload your files to your account and generate a download link that you can place in emails and on your landing pages.

In this article, you will learn how to upload your files to File Manager and add them to your Ontraport Pages and emails.

  • Click the upload file button
  • Drag and drop the file into the upload dialog, or click Browse Computer to find the file on your computer. You can also enter the URL for a file hosted elsewhere on the web.

Add file links to Ontraport Pages and emails

  • When creating an Ontraport Page or Ontraport Email, select the button or text element where you’d like to add the download link.

Hosting Videos

In Ontraport you can upload and embed videos in your Ontraport Pages, WordPress site, or any website capable of using the HTML5 video tag. Here’s how.

Upload a video file

  • Prepare your video file for upload.
    1. The Video Manager accepts most video file types (3GP, AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MPEG, OGG/OGV, WEBM and WMV). Any of these formats work when using the video in landing pages or on a WordPress site, but HTML5 encoding is limited to MP4, WEBM and OGV.
    2. Make certain your video file is less than 200 MB in size. For videos that exceed this size, use a different hosting service such as YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia.
  • In Ontraport, click the profile icon, then select Administration and in the data tab (default) click the video manager section.
  • Click the purple new video button.
  • Name the video by entering a value in the top left field.
  • Drag and drop your video onto the page or click Browse to select the video file from your computer.

Embed video files in Ontraport Pages

  • Select the video element  and drop it into the block where you would like it to appear.
  • Click on the video thumbnail to expose the video menu options on the left.
  • In the Add a Video URL field, copy/paste the URL where your video is hosted.

Embed video files in WordPress pages

Users must have Ontraport’s PilotPress plugin installed on their WordPress site for this option.

  • In WordPress page edit mode, click the menu toggle icon to add Ontraport media.
  • Select the Videos tab and double click on the video to insert it onto the page.

Embed video files using HTML5

  • In Ontraport, click the profile icon then select Administration > Video Manager.
  • Click on the thumbnail of the video you wish to embed. The video loads in the Ontraport player.
  • Right-click on the video and select Copy Video Location.
  • Paste the URL into a text file for use later on your web page. It will be used in the <source src=” tag to indicate the source of the video (refer to the full HTML5 video tag specifications at W3 Schools).
