Add Videos to Your Mind Maps!

This post was updated on July 14, 2017.

After the recently added Drawn Image feature we’re expanding MindMeister’s media repertoire yet again, this time proudly introducing videos for your mind maps! Videos can be added directly from YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion and are playable not just in the map editor but also in Presentation Mode, a great enhancement for slideshows of all kinds.

How to Add Videos to Mind Maps

Click on “Browse videos” to open the video dialog.

Alternatively, you can write or paste any video URL directly into the designated field. In this case the content of the selected topic will be disregarded.
