About the Video element
Unlike version 6, the latest version of the editor combines various video elements, such as YouTube and Vimeo, into a single Video element.
With this updated feature, users can easily showcase videos from multiple sources and customize them to quickly capture their customers’ attention.
From the GemPages Dashboard, open a template to edit. You can quickly find the Video element on the left sidebar of the Editor, under the Media section. Drag & drop the element to any position you prefer.
Clicking on the Video element, the configuration will be available on the left sidebar, which will be covered in the following sections.
Configure the Settings Tab
Video Source: Select a video source from the available options, which include YouTube, Vimeo, and HTML5 video, by using the drop-down menu. Then, enter the corresponding video link into the designated box.
A video thumbnail is a static image used as a preview for your video. You have three options for uploading your video thumbnail:
- Change Image: Simply hover over the image and select “Change Image.” This enables you to select an image from your computer and upload it.
