Video Player

A component that displays a video.


Use the Youtube Player to play YouTube videos and playlists.

How to use

  • To add the source of the video for the Video component to play, go to the Data tab (third tab) in the Properties Panel.
  • Under Input Text > URL, you can add a static video URL.
  • Go to the Styles tab (first tab), and make sure to add a value for the width property. A Video component needs to have a width and a height defined.
  • If the Video URL is coming from an API endpoint, you can define a variable in curly braces {{}} in Input Text > URL and then select the value of the URL from the dropdown menu under Variables.

Style Properties

Style properties allow you to customize the look and feel of the component. Combinations of styles applied to components can be saved as Stylesheets to easily reuse styles throughout your app. Styles can also be set dynamically using Variables. To learn more about all the different styling properties and how they work, take a look at Intro to Styling.
