The "Video Block" allows you to display videos on specific pages on your website. The steps to add and edit this block are outlined in this article.
Adding the Video Block
First, navigate to the Block Library by clicking on the "+ Blocks" button on the left side once logged into the CMS Tool:
Find the video block in the Block Library. Choose the style that you want and then drag it to where you would like to place it on the page to the right side of the CMS Tool:
Double-click on the video block or click the "Edit" icon on the top-right of that specific block and all of the content that can be edited for this block will be displayed:
Video Block Types
There are four different styles available for the video block:
The first type of video block is "Single Video." You can input your YouTube URL or upload your video, edit the video title, background color, and style as you would like. This is what these fields look like prior to editing:
The video settings default to showing a progress bar, so do not forget to choose the other options if you would prefer to adjust this.
The second video block style is called "Double Videos." This style has two columns for displaying the videos (this cannot be customized at present). As you can see in the picture, it is divided into the left and the right, and you can edit them separately.
Here is what the settings for this style look like:
The video play method is forced to play because there are multiple videos. It will also show the progress bar by default and unmute the volume when played.
The third style of this block is presented as a video list. This is typically used for showing more than two videos and you can choose the columns (2-5) and spacing (0-50) as you would like. You can set the title and descriptions as well as the background of the block.
Just like with the "Double Videos" style, the video play method is forced to play because there are multiple videos. It will also show the progress bar by default and unmute the volume when played. You can also customize what order of the videos displayed on the site.
The last style of the video block is for displaying virtual tours and videos in a large format:
You can upload multiple videos and multiple virtual tour links using this option. You can also edit the titles of the video and virtual tour sections displayed on the site. The background color can also be adjusted.
