Now you can embed Instagram images into the Dilmot stream


We are increasing the social media integration of Dilmot and now you can embed Instagram images as well as Twitter, YouTube and Vimeo.

Dilmot allows you embed external providers content (Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo).

All you need to do is introducing either the content url or the embed code this provider generates for you, and we will show this content as it is displayed in its original place!

A live blog or chat that you can embed inside your web


If you are looking for a way of publishing live chats, blogging, Q&A’s and events, you can use dilmot.com.

It is very simple to use. You just have to create an account in dilmot.com. In Dilmot we call “stream” to the live session that is going to be published. This stream can be included in your website like a live feed. So you just have to create a stream for the event you want to cover live, whether it is a Q&A, broadcasting a football match, etc. You may insert this stream in your blog or web, with a simple iframe code that you can put in your webpage. This works in a similar fashion to inserting a live YouTube video.

In the following image you can see the area in the application where you can get the code that you can use to insert your web.

In the following image you can see how the live stream will show embedded into an on-line newspaper such as Elconfidencial.com

Embed YouTube video in Question, Answer, or Post for a live blogging session


Enter a YouTube video url. There are 3 ways of inserting the YouTube video:
1) The url in the browser url box:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me6BgmeTH3k
2) The url given in the YouTube “share” option:
https://youtu.be/me6BgmeTH3k
3) The embed code given in the YouTube “embed” option:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/me6BgmeTH3k" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The final result will be something like this, in the backend:
