Adding Video

Can anyone help me add an encoded .flv video to our email campaigns?  I'm guessing it involves using Dreamweaver or an HTML Editor, but not sure how to go about it.  Dreamweaver is what I have.

Hi abbinns,

Unfortunately, .flv files really aren't going to be supported in the majority of email clients. Your best bet is going to be to host that video on your website and add something like a screenshot of your video to your campaign and link that to the video hosted online. You can see some research about video in email here.
