How to Use MP Embed
Replace my.matterport.com with mpembed.com in any Matterport embed code.
Turn on features by adding additional parameters to your space url — or embedding hidden Mattertags in your space that contain the settings.
Embed w/Mini Map and Advanced Infobox w/all options
Basic Overview & Tutorial
Minimap & Tag Navigation
Set Parameters With Hidden Mattertags
You can also set options for a tour using ‘hidden’ Mattertags.
By setting your options in a Mattertag, you will be able to change options and add features to your embedded tours at any time from within my.matterport.com without the need to change the parameters on the websites that you have published your tour to.
Note – Premium users can configure tours via our member area, which is extremely easy!
You can also set options with parameters in addition to all standard Showcase parameters.

Google Analytics Support
You can now track engagement with your Matterport Space!
Using the Live Events feature of Google Analytics, you can even see as people are navigating your spaces in real time!
- Showcase Events: Entering panos, changing modes (floorplan/dollhouse/inside/360 Views), highlight reel (start/stop/end/step), changing floors, clicking Mattertags
- MP.Embed Events: Mini Map Hotspot Click, Highlight Dropdown select
The format of how events are logged may change during beta based on feedback. More documentation coming post-beta.
Tips & Tricks
Disabling the Highlights Reel
Consider disabling the highlight reel in Workshop if you’d like to use the Highlight Reel directory, but not the guided tour feature.
You can experience Mattertags in an entirely new way by hiding them all (&mt=0) and using the MatterTag Directory (&info=mdir). Now Mattertags serve only as a navigational menu and when clicked, their content will appear in a panel in the infobox until the viewer clicks ‘back’.
Try My Favorite Photo Filter
Most photo filters create cheesy effects, but if you’d like to boost your brightness and saturation just a bit, try &filter=favorite
Embed on Social Media
MPEmbed links will embed on Facebook, Twitter or any site that supports OpenGraph.
oEmbed Support for Content Management Systems
Insert your mpembed.com link to automatically insert your tour in your site if it supports oEmbed.
WordPress only supports whitelisted oEmbed providers, of which neither Matterport or MPEmbed are.
I made a plugin that fixes that and allows embedding Matterport and MPEmbed urls simply by pasting them to a blank line in WordPress.
