Options

For all Types of Videos:

  • url: the url of the video
  • image: url to a jpeg for a thumbnail (only works for some browsers/devices)
  • autostart: (true, false) (only works for non-youtube videos)
  • showinfo: (0, 1) – if using a youtube video you can turn off the title, default is 0 if title is specified.
  • fourbythree: (true, false) – only set when showing a 4×3 video

There are three ways to display a video, full width (default), floated to the right of content, and in an aside with a title and caption.

Examples

Default Video With a Cover Image

The default width of videos is set to 100% of the screen size. This will scale down so that it’s viable on any type of device.
