YouTube videos are not currently supported. Please use a video in a .mp4 or .mov format.

Adding a Video component

  • Select the Video component from the Components drawer. You can open the list of components by clicking the + button next to Components.
  • 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.
