How do I embed a video from a URL?
You can easily use a video from a URL to add it to your website without downloading the file. You can either add a new video from the URL or edit an existing one from the template.
To add a video to your page:
- Click on the Add elements button then drag and drop the Video element into your page content.
- Add the URL of your video in the Video link filed and click on the OK button.
- Video link
You can change the URL of the video here, including videos that come from the template.
- Select the video properties:
Muted autoplay – start playing your muted clip once the page is loaded
Mute – enable mute as a default setting
Loop – set the video to play on repeated loop
Controls – show or hide default controls
Video window settings
- Width and Height
Set up the size of the video in pixels. You can maintain its ratio by enabling the lock (i.e. switching the toggle to the right position).
You can always restore the video to its original size by clicking on the Restore original size link.
- Scale to full-screen width on mobile
If enabled, it’ll make your video full-width on mobile screens.
Align your video inside the video block to left, centre or right.
The video block is a framed workspace around your clip with a Video label on the left. You can only see the frame after clicking on the object. It won’t be visible on your website.
You can customize its color, padding, border, radius, and shadow.
Enable this option to move the video to any place on your website.
Note: we only recommend using this option if you have some unusual design that can’t be created in any other way. Using objects with absolute positioning can make your page less responsive on mobile devices.
Hide on mobile devices
Enable this option to hide your video when your page is opened on a mobile device to make it simpler and faster.
