No. Most email clients (including Gmail and Outlook) cannot play embedded videos. 

A common workaround is embedding an image or a GIF of the video in your email. Then, hyperlink the image to your video hosted on another website (e.g. YouTube). 

To hyperlink an embedded image or GIF: 

  1. Click the image icon to upload a picture (e.g. a screenshot from your video)
  2. Insert the image
  3. Highlight the image
  4. Click the link icon
  5. Enter the URL of the video
  6. Click Save

Note that you have to convert any MP4 files to a GIF before trying to upload it in the Pitches composer above.

If you're going with a static JPG image instead of a GIF, usually you’ll want the image to be at least 600px or wider.
