  6. There will only be one template available to use for the Embed URL element. Click it to add the element to your page.
  7. Once added, you can click the Embed URL section. This will load the Embed URL settings menu to the right of your screen.
  8. Set size and alignment settings, then enter the 'embed' URL for the audio you are trying to add.

You are not limited to music with this element; you can use the Embed URL element to pull other media in through an iframe as well.
