How To Add Videos to Your Web Page
Looking to add video to your pages?
You're in the right spot! The ChurchSpring Inline Editor makes it simple. Here are the steps involved in getting a video player embedded on your pages.
1. Grab the video's embed code
Visit most video platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook and copy the embed code for the video you want to insert. Usually you can copy the embed code by right clicking on the video and selecting the "copy embed code" option, or you can find it by clicking on the "Share" option.
2. Click the embed video icon on the Inline editor toolbar
Navigate to the page in which you want to embed the video, and click the content area to edit it. When you do, you will see the editor toolbar show up above the content area. Click the icon shown below:
3. Paste the embed code
When you click the embed video icon, a window will popup with two options: 1) Link, 2) Embed. Click on the embed icon as shown below, and a field where you can paste the embed code will appear. Add the code, and click the "insert button." Your video player will show up in the content of your page.
4. Click save and you're done!
Scroll down to the bottom of the content area and click the save button. That's it!
Want to add a background video to your pages? You can do that!
Adding a background video on your home page (behind the sliders) can be done by hovering over “background,” and clicking “custom image.” “Video” is the second option at the top of the open window. When you click on Video, another window will open prompting you to load a YouTube link to your video. Please note that this area is designed to integrate with YouTube links only.
FAQ's AND TROUBLESHOOTING
- Why can't I upload my video directly into my ChurchSpring website?
- That's a great question! Since uploading your video into your site can affect your page load time (causing major lag), this would result in a poor experience for your site visitor. Embedding videos is a way to help maintain your site speed and create a good experience for your site visitor. Afterall, site speed is something that is important to SEO!
