How do I set up an embedded video page on my builder?
Jul 1, 2016 | By: Zibster Support Hub
Video is a great way to add more interest and provide more interaction on your website. Our Embedded Video page makes it super-easy to add videos and text to your Builder website. The best part is your viewers get to watch the videos right on your website. There isn't a light box window that pops up and it doesn't take your viewers away from your website to another window to watch the video. This page also makes it easy to add as many videos as you'd like to the page.
The first thing you'll need to do is upload your video to a video hosting site, like YouTube, Vimeo, or Animoto. After your video is uploaded, you'll need to access the share options for the video and get the HTML embed code provided.
To get started with your video page, click on the Builder icon at the top of your control panel and click on the web pages tab.
From there, click on new page and then embedded video.
This will add a new video page to the bottom of your list of pages called "Extra Embedded Video". You can drag and drop the page on the left side of the screen to the position you'd like to be in your menu. You can also click on the pencil icon to update the page name.
There are a few different components to the video page: layout, page title, content, videos, and html.
The layout section allows you to choose a layout for your page. There are three layouts available: large horizontal, compact, and serpentine.
The page title section allows you to change the title of the page that will show at the top of the page. This does not change what the page is labeled as in the menu.
The content section allows you to add some text that will show under the title, but above the videos on your video page. If you're going to add text here, it is best to keep the text fairly brief, since the focus of the page is the videos.
Of course, the most important part of this page is adding videos. To get started adding videos, click on the new video button.
From there, you'll be prompted to fill in three fields: title, description, and embed code.
Enter the information for your first video then click on save item.
After the first video has been added, click on the go back button and click on new video again to add another video. You can add as many videos as you'd like by repeating these steps.
At the bottom of the page, you can add some HTML code if needed. Note: Code added to the HTML section will not appear on the mobile site.
