Thrive Apprentice + Videos upload on Google Drive: How it works.

If you want to use a video uploaded in a Google Drive folder inside a Thrive Apprentice lesson, you will need a full embed code.

You can use the following code to wrap your video file.

<iframe src="https://drive.google.com/file/d/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/preview" width="640" height="480" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>

Simply replace the xxxxxxxxx by your video Id found in the URL of your video.

You can simply paste it in Thrive Apprentice following this screenshot:


  • Upload a mp3 file. Simply drag and drop to your google drive from your desktop
  • Share publicly or to a group.
  • Copy the embed code in Thrive Apprentice

Benefits of hosting videos on Google Drive

  • Free
  • Easy to upload, simply drag and drop to your google drive from your desktop
  • You can set the video to be public.
  • You can set your videos to be only visible to a group of gmail users (when using Google Workspace).  Your visitors will need to always be logged in into their gmail on another tab.

Cons of hosting videos on Google Drive
