Important Note:

Depending on the nature of your Content Management System (CMS), implementing Ghost videos may vary. This article details a platform agnostic approach to implementing Interactive Videos. So long as you are able to add a code snippet to your site's header, and embed custom code on a page, you will be able to implement Interactive Videos.
