Inserting Video in RevSlider (complete beginner here!)

Recommended Posts

darcythe2nd

I understand I can have a video in the revslider section in pagelines. I've looked through some mentions of this in other threads but none of them explain, step-by-step how this is done in a way that's understandable to someone who's not familiar with all the lingo just yet. The video I want to put up is a youtube video. 

 

What exactly do I need to put and where.... Please, please make it as idiot proof as possible. 

My site is johnsonlib.org

Hi,

 

The RevSlider section supports mp4 and ogv formats, this is so that all browsers display your video has different browsers have different ways of handling HTML5 videos. Therefore, there is no option to add a YouTube video, unless you download it and convert it to these formats, then add it to the video options.

 

The only other way of adding a video to a RevSlider such as a Vimeo or YouTube is to add it via the Extra Slider options in the Slider settings. This requires some knowledge of HTML code. However, I have written a post which provides an easy step guide on how to include your preferred video to the RevSlider via the Extra Slider Options.

Thank you Danny. One more thing. On wordpress the max upload limit is only 10mb! Is there any way to circumvent this. A 1 minute video of mine in mp4 format exceeds 100 mb!!

You would probably want to reduce the file size of that video, as it's pretty hefty and/or host on a video hosting service like Vimeo or YouTube instead. If you want to override the file limit which I wouldn't recommend you will want to see this article here - http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-increase-the-maximum-file-upload-size-in-wordpress/

      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.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      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.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date
