Adding a video widget
How to add videos and some of the options that are available to you.
1. .Click the blue plus button for the section where you want to add the video
Choose video from the widgets panel.
2. Select whether you want to upload a video or add a video from your project library. Alternatively, if the video is YouTube or Vimeo, simply paste the link.
3. Here you can define if the video should show its controls, eg: play, pause, audio, ... .
Autoplay will start the video when it is scrolled into view and pause the video when it scrolls out of view.
Loop will restart the video when it's done playing.
4. Once the video is added you can use the properties in the video palette to set the width to match the design you have in mind.

- The video you upload will automatically be converted to formats that maximize its compatibility across major browsers and mobile operating systems.
- You can auto-play video on your phone by adding the following Angular attribute in the Video palette: force-canvas-player="true". But keep in mind that this is data-intensive and no audio will be included, so this really works best for experiences that are short and for which synchronized audio is not essential.
- Fullscreen video and actions are not supported on Firefox browsers due to restrictions imposed by Mozilla.
