When building your website with your drag and drop editor, you may come across the ability to display video on your pages. Once you have the video URL from either Youtube or Vimeo, you can quickly add that to your website to view that clip live.
Whether the theme already has a video in it or you would like to add a new one to a section, this article will cover how to add the video element or change the Settings and URL once added.
Adding a Video
- To begin, launch into your website by selecting Edit Site.
- Select Elements from the left-hand menu.
- Next, look for and select Videos.
- Click on Single Video.
- Click on a location within your editor to place the block.
- Once placed, you will see the Video Preview display with a toolbar above it.
Changing a Video URL
- From the editor, select the video element you’d like to change to reveal the video toolbar. Select Change Video.
- A pop-up will appear with a text box inside.
- Copy the URL from the source and paste it into the text area provided. Pro Tip: The video must be set to public to be displayed on the site.
- Select OK, and you will land back on the main design dashboard where you will see your video preview.
- Be sure to Save and Publish your changes to make them live.
