Video element

The Video element displays a single video from Resources. It will automatically fill the width of the container the element is displayed in.

Element Settings

In addition to the common element settings, the Video element includes the following configuration options.

  • Browse: Use this button to search for the specific video within Resources and select it to display in the element.


  • Display Resource: Choose to display the filename or the title of the video, or none.


  • Resolution up to: The choices are 4K Ultra HD (2160px), Full HD (1080px), HD (720px), SD (480px), but by default the element will display the video at the optimal resolution for the video and the screen size. Making a selection among the choices provided will override the automatic default, and force the video to display at the selected resolution.

  • Show Controls/Hide Controls: Enable “Show Controls” to allow users to pause and play the video, mute and control volume, and skip to a specific point in the video. “Hide Controls” will not allow any of this functionality, so “Autoplay” is required.

  • Autoplay: Enable this option to make the video play automatically, rather than waiting for the user to press play. If Autoplay is selected, the "Muted" and "Plays inline on mobile (iOS)" options are required.

  • Closed Captions: If a closed caption file is included for the video in Resources, enable this option to display it.

  • Loop: With this option enabled, the video will return and play from the beginning after it reaches the end.

  • Muted: This option automatically mutes the video. If the “Show Controls” option is also enabled, users can choose to unmute it.

  • Plays inline on mobile (iOS): By default, a video viewed on an iOS (Apple) device will open in a lightbox and block out the rest of the page when played. With this option selected, the video will instead play as part of the page.


  • Ignore URL Parameters: If this option is selected, the resource displayed in the element by default will remain even if user-selected criteria would normally override it.

List, Grid, and Slideshow formats

Note that the Video element can also be converted to a List, Grid, or Slideshow format, which functions the same way as the Resource element. Refer to the Resource element article for more information about these settings.
