Is it possible to add a video to my storefront?

There are several approaches for displaying video content on your storefront. Home page sections, product page areas, and web pages are some common places to enhance with videos from YouTube or Vimeo.  

Home Page

Video Widget

On the Page Builder you can drag and drop content onto pages with any page builder regions. The Video widget embeds a YouTube or Vimeo, and provides additional controls.

  • Video URL — Enter the URL of a YouTube or Vimeo video.
  • Autoplay video — Set whether this video should automatically start upon visiting the page.
  • Loop video — Set whether this video should automatically start again once it reaches the end.
  • Display video controls — Set whether video controls (like the play button and volume control) should be visible to the user.

Product Page

To add a video, go to an individual product from the Products area in the Control Panel and scroll down the page to the Images & videos section.

Use the  Add from URL button to add a video that's already on YouTube.

If a previously uploaded video is no longer available on YouTube, you will be prompted to re-add the video.

Web Pages

The WYSIWYG Editor

For any pages that have the WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor you can embed additional media.

Use  Insert Video to embed a video from:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Metacafe

Use  Insert/Edit Embedded Media to embed additional media.

Seven types of media may be embedded, including:

The  Advanced tab contains additional options specific to each media type.

User-added image

The  Source tab will display the code used to embed the element. Use it to paste in embed code from a third party, or manipulate code created by the editor.
