Adding a Lead Form

In this topic you will learn how to add a lead form annotation.

The Interactivity module allows adding different types of interactive annotations to videos. The Lead Form Annotation will enable you to embed a form from systems like Eloqua, Salesforce, Marketo, and HubSpot.

Before you get started

Before you can add interactivity to a player, you need an Interactivity-enabled Brightcove Player and you need to make sure an Interactivity project has been created. See Getting Started with the Interactivity Module and Configuring a Brightcove Player with the Interactivity Plugin for more information.
