Adding videos to your page

NOTE: Make sure that the video you are adding is set to be public in order for it to be available to your page visitors. 

The first step in adding a video is clicking on the "Video" button:

On the right side, you will be able to add the link to your video, add a title for accessibility purposes, and enable whether you want it to autoplay and have a progress bar or not.

Link: You can paste the URL of any YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia video into the field.

Video title: Here you can add your video title. We recommend giving it the same name as the actual title of the video.

Progress bar: With YouTube videos, you have the option to hide or show the bar at the bottom of the video. Removing it can add to the visual appeal of your video and keep watchers more focused.

NOTE: Videos added from Vimeo do not have the progress bar available.

Auto Play: If you check this option, the video will play automatically when the page is accessed, but it will be muted by default. The page visitor can un-mute it manually if they wish to do so, as long as the progress bar is visible.

 

! If you want to add the URL of a YouTube Shorts video, you can do that, but not by copying the URL from the address bar. Right-click on the video, click on Copy video URL, and then that URL is the one you can paste into our video widget.

 

If your video is not hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia, you can still add it to your page using the HTML element feature
