Inserting through the Banner element

Please note when using the banner it automatically strips out all of Vimeo's or YouTube's controls as this method is designed to provide a clean looking video custom to your own site rather. If you wish to have all controls showing, Method 1 above is a better option.


Inserting through the Video integrations element

This element allows you to insert a video using YouTube or Vimeo. While the help video below only shows YouTube, the method is exactly the same for Vimeo, except you choose Vimeo from the integrations drop down.

Select type This is to provide the option to paste in a URL or embed code from the video platform. More often this will be the URL.
URL The YouTube or Vimeo browser URL.
Embed Where you have an embed code instead.
Show preview

This shows a video thumbnail taken from the video site to show on first view. On click, it activates the video as normal. 

Why this feature? It is to help page speed scores. Google gives much lower scores to all sites (no matter the platform) where a video is directly inserted to a page, and this feature bypasses this problem for faster speed scores.

Responsive This makes your video responsive to the area it is placed in, as well as for different devices.

Adding Videos to boxes

This help video shows you how to insert a YouTube video into boxes. The same method applies for Vimeo.
