Include a Video section to display a YouTube or Vimeo video viewer right on your home page.
Add Video to your home page
- In the theme editor (Customize), click [+] Add section
- Locate Video
- Click the section, then Add
Include optional heading
Add a Heading using the provided text field.
Connect the video URL
Add the YouTube or Vimeo URL to the labeled field.
Adjust the video wrapper
You have the control to set the video's Aspect ratio between 16:9 and 21:9. This will set the width in proportion to the height, so 16:9 would be the more narrow option and 21:9 would provide a wider display.
Add a cover image
Click Select image to add the Cover image, then set the Position as well. This comes in handy when you'd prefer a placeholder to show before the video is selected. The Autoplay feature will not work with the Cover image as a placeholder.
Whether you choose the Autoplay or Cover image, you can add an Overlay to either. With this setting, select the Overlay color and the Opacity, as well.
