It's never been easier to add video to your event page. To get started, copy one of the following from the player where your video is currently hosted.
- YouTube URL.
- Vimeo URL (Note that the video will need to be public, unlisted videos may not work).
- Embed (iframe) code (Requires access to advanced design tools).
At this time, uploading video files (.mov, .mp4) to be hosted directly within Splash is not possible.
How to embed a YouTube or Vimeo video using a Video block:
- Hover over the section of the Splash page you'd like to add the video and click the appearing square "+" button to add a block from the Block Library.
- Click into the Video category.
- Select a video block that you'd like to add.
- On page, hover over the new block and click the Video option that appears.
- In the video editor, replace the placeholder video URL with your YouTube or Vimeo URL.
Pro Tip: Take advantage of those additional options to prevent guests from pausing media by hiding video controls or sit back and relax knowing your media will be on a continuous loop while your guest has your event page open.
Don't know how to get an iframe or embed code?
