As you can see, it is easy to embed videos on your site. Although there are well-known services, you might consider embedding a Google drive video rather than using them. There are several benefits. When you upload your video, most sites consider that as public. It means that you might not be able to specify who you want to show. When you share something from Google drive, you can easily set who can see. It also has a handy permission scope, an organization.

That being said, embedding a Google drive video supports a better permission scope and security. If you consider it, here are the steps. After uploading your video, you first need to share it. You can set specific users or an organization.

Unlike YouTube, finding “Embed code” in Google drive is not straightforward. First of all, you need to click “Preview”. Google drive preview

Then, open the menu by pressing the top-right icon, and click “Open in new window”. That will open a new tab.
