Rev Slider / Embedding Videos in General DMS2

Recommended Posts


Dear PageLines Forum,

So I have here a video which i've embedded from the FTP server into the RevSlider:


I would like to change the black bars to either white or a different color, anything not black.  How would I go about doing this?  Another, more complicated, request that I have is to be able to time the transition from the video to the RevSlider (or other slides if video is to stay inside RevSlider).

I want it so that the video automatically plays upon page-load, and continues to play.  Once it is finished playing it will fade away and transition to the slider.  So I want the video to play all the way through once, and then never come back again unless the page is revisted/refreshed and then transition to the RevSlider.  I understand that this may be more difficult and I could just keep it in the slider and let people do as they please, but this would really make me happy!

Thank you all for your time and advice

- Peter

Hi Peter


We'd need a live link to the page so we could see where the color was coming from in the source code to provide you with how to tackle that part.


The issue with the video vanishing and not coming back isn't going to be easy, its not something you'll be able to do from within the DMS revsliders standard options unfortunately. It could be possible using Revsliders manually code which you can find at - http://www.orbis-ingenieria.com/code/documentation/documentation.html but would be outside of our immediate support spectrum. The code from the revslider docs would need to be added inside the 'slide extra captions' box to use this option. http://screencast.com/t/lOlEqr4u


Another way you could do something similar without having to use the video in the slider would be to place the video inside a modal which appears on the first page load, once closed the slider below continues as normal and the video never appears again then unless the page is refreshed triggering the modal again.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Here's a link to my site: http://www.talipayments.com

I definitely like the idea of using a modal, though.  However, the only Modal plug-in I see that automatically pops up on page load is $14.99. Would there be a free version to this anywhere?  Otherwise I guess i'll have to bite the bullet for the time being haha.  As for manually adding the RevSlider code, do you mean literally copy/paste everything from the RevSlider site into the 'extra captions' text box?  And then make my adjustments?  Thanks again for all of your help, I really appreciate it!

edit: I just noticed that the video autoplays on the site.  This is fine, although i'm wondering why it's autoplaying when auto-play is set to 'false' in the extra captions box.  What is bothering though is the fact that the video continues playing whether it's on the slide or not.  Is this something that can be changed or is it another limitation to DMS' RevSlider without using a manually implemented RevSlider. Here's my code for the extra captions box:


<div class="caption fade fullscreenvideo tp-caption start" data-autoplay="false" data-x="0" data-y="0" data-speed="500" data-start="10" data-easing="easeOutBack">

<iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="http://talipayments.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/MVideo1.mp4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" id="iframe444" class="HasListener" style="width: 0px; height: 0px;"></iframe>

have you removed the video since this? is it possible to re add the video to another page to test for us? 

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      Hi there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.

      Trying to convert a site over to PL5 from DMS2. Can we use revslider? Can any portion of DMS2 be editable or imported through PL5?
      I'm trying to wrap my head around the new PL5 os, but things have changed so much it like learning a new software. I DO like the new UI! Great job.
