    Is it possible to add a video clip rather than an image?

    • Kayte K

      Hi Greg- great question. Yes, you can add a video clip into your surveys. You do need to be on a paid plan as you’ll need to ‘turn on’ HTML in order to include a video. More info here from our Help Center:

      Let us know if you’ve any additional questions!

        What about incorporating an image into a survey question? What if we want the viewer to have the image in front of them when they answer the question?

    Thanks for the great video. I wish I had known this before finalizing my survey. I tried to dabble with html to add images but was not able to store the images in a secure place which could be viewable by my respondents.

    This video will make life much easier.

    Kudos SurveyMonkey Team.

    Its such as you read my mind! You appear to
    know a lot about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I feel that you simply can do with a few p.c. to power the message home a
    little bit, however other than that, that is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

    I want a survey where people respond to the image and give their reactions. Is there a way to ask questions about the image? Thanks!
