Insert an Existing Video into Content

To provide the easiest  access to Panopto Videos insert the video in an HTML page.  You can insert more than one video on an HTML page, but if you insert too many the page will load very slowly.  Best practice is to limit the number of Panopto videos on a page to no more than 3.
