Export Format Options

In the Export Editor, when you are ready with your preffered settings, you can copy the resulting embed code and paste it into your website code editor. The code is available in 4 flavors: Embed code, HTML Embed Code, Direct link and Embedly:

The default Embed code is a Javascript element and looks similar to this:

<script src="" data-kuula="" data-width="100%" data-height="640px"></script>

The HTML format looks something like this:

<iframe width="100%" height="640" style="width: 100%; height: 640px; border: none;" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen="true" src=""></iframe>

Both the Direct link and Embedly options are straight URLs that look a bit like this:

Which one should you choose?

If you want to share the link directly via email, IM or text message - choose the Direct link option. If you want to embed the content on a website, choose the default, Javascript, Embed code.

When it comes to embedding, the Javascript embed code style has several big advantages over the HTML option. This includes fullscreen mode on iOS devices (iPhone, iPad) and better performance with multiple embeds on one page. Kuula PRO users can use the Javascript embed code to enable VR mode on iOS.

However, there are some CMS systems and publishing tools that do not accept 3rd party Javascript elements. This is why we offer the more traditional HTML solution as well. So, if the Javascript code doesn't work, try HTML. One good exmaple where you need to do this is when embedding a 360 image from Kuula on Tumblr.

If you use a platform that supports Embedly the you should grab the Embedly URL. Systems that support Embedly include Linkedin publications, Medium blog posts, Matterport hotspots and many others.

Finally there is Direct link. Other than sharing directly as mentionned above, this option can be useful for developers who write their own embed management code in Javascript. You can use the link and set it as the src attribute for the iframe element in your app.
