Kanopy provides the code to link to or embed its videos on pages in Blackboard, etc. 

Link to videos

Find the video in Kanopy, click the Share button underneath it, then the Share tab. The code displays in the Share Link box.

The link should start in this format:

http://ezproxy.library.usyd.edu.au/login?url=https://sydney.kanopystreaming.com/video/...

and not:

https://sydney.kanopystreaming.com.ezproxy1.library.usyd.edu.au/video/...

or users will get security certificate warnings from their browsers

Embed videos

Find the video in Kanopy, click the Share button underneath it, then the  Embed tab.

Options expands to let you specify the size of the player. Copy and paste the code onto your page. Ensure that this section of the URL: src='https://sydney.kanopystreaming.com/ starts with https:// and not http://

You don't need to use ezproxy when using the embed code, as clients will automatically be prompted to sign in to it when they are off-campus.
