    Hi, I went to the site where it explained how to add video but I still couldn't figure out what I needed.
    I was able to add video to the bottom of my hub, but I had 3 different videos i wanted to place with in the paragraphs of my hub. Can someone tell me how to do that? thank you

      Hi Beth.When you write your paragraph do not write the next one add video capsule and you are done.If you write paragraph consistently then you will be no longer of adding video with in the paragraphs.I face the same problem but mine were solved.

        Oh so you're saying I have to add the video at the end of each paragraph before progressing to the next one? I see, so it cannot be added after. Ok, thank you so much. I appreciate it. smile

    Beth you can add video anywhere and anywhere in your but can not add in between text of paragraph. Your video will be either in between paragraph on on the right side of paragraph like your first image or Google Ads are shown.
    You can add videos even after proceeding to another paragraph. I suppose, you know that it need to insert video capsule to add video like you use to add text and that video capsule you can add anywhere in between other capsules and you can move that video capsule using UP, Down and Sideways to adjust position.

    If you want to add video in between the text of paragraph then you can break that paragraph in two separate text capsules (break paragraph where you want to add video) and then add a video capsule in between those two text capsule.

      I guess I dont know how to insert a video capsule in a specific place. When I click on video, it shoots it straight to the bottom of the page. Even when I move that little icon that says I can insert something in a certain place, it goes to the bottom.

        Usually, when you insert video capsules it goes top of the capsules into which you clicked that green icon to insert. and you can move it UP, Down or sideways.
        But if, in your case video capsule always goes at the bottom, try it moving UP, Down with arrows given on capsule.

        Check: Did you write your hub in a single text capsule or broken into number of separate capsules.

            Oh Beth37, Here is main problem. Just break your text in more than 2 or three capsules. You can add different capsules for every paragraph.
            You article have about 4 paragraphs and you can insert 01 text capsule for every paragraph. (write 1st paragraph in single capsule and save, then insert another text capsule down for 2nd paragraph n save, and then for thirds and fourth)

            There will not be any difference, after publishing your hub will look like same as before.

            But you can add your video capsules in between those text capsules.

            The main thing is, You can add any capsules(text, photo, video, eBay, Amazon etc) anywhere but can't  add capsule inside other capsule. An if you publishes your text in single text capsules, there is no way to add another capsule inside it, either you can add in bottom or top but you can enter capsule in between two capsules. So, advise is to break text in 3-4 capsules.

            It hope, it will help you.

              Thats great advice, thank you. And just to clarify, I need to save every time I add a capsule before moving on?

    The little green arrows on the video capsule should help you to move it to left or full size, up or down yikes report to HP team and they will investigate asap. They're good smile for now, maybe just finish your hub and save it unpublished. You can let it 'steep' and it'll grow some ... grade tongue

    next to the edit button there are arrows that you use to move  it up or down

    You just need to save that capsules you entered text in with "save" button on every capsule like you already had done before. Saving means when you enter content in capsule you have to save that capsule.
    When you arranged all capsules then finally click "Done Editing" or "Publish".

    I tried that delete the links and republish. Didn't work and there were lots and lots of articles like mine on the same topic. I gave up and deleted. After deleting I even had accolades taken away.

    yes first of all you have to create your unique and interesting hub after that you have to arrange your text in text capsules and photos in photos capsule after that if in between 1 paragraph you want to place a video or photo then you have to break your para in to two paragraph and after that you successfully added your videos or photos between a single paragraph smile

      Ok, but to be honest, even if my hub isn't unique or interesting, I should still be able to add a capsule in between paragraphs. smile
