PageBuilder - Video Component

The Video component allows you to add a video to your page. It’s an excellent way to showcase dynamic content to grab a viewer’s attention.

Video Settings

Component Name: The name of the component. The default value is Video but it can be edited as needed.

Video URL: This is where you enter the link to the video you wish to display. Videos can be from YouTube, Vimeo or any other externally hosted site.

Important

You cannot upload a video to the Miva admin to use in the video component. The video must be uploaded elsewhere.

Display Size: This sets the size of the video display. There are seven options: Small, Medium, Large, 16/9, 4/3, 3/2 or Specific Width and Height (See Advanced). Any specific width and height will be set in the Advanced tab. See more information on that here.

Display Size: In the example above, from top to bottom, the video display size is Small, Medium and Large.

Properties: Text Overlay

To add a Text Overlay to the video, click the slider to enable it. Once it is enabled, the configuration options open below. Using a Text Overlay is strictly optional, and it is off by default.

Content Placement: This determines where the content of the overlay will be placed. The options are Left, Center or Right.

Content Placement/Text Alignment: In the example above, the content is placed left, and the text is also aligned left.

Note

For the rest of the configuration options for elements like Heading Text, Subheading Text, Body Text and Button Text, please visit the Text Settings document, here.

Advanced: Spacing

The Spacing section of the Advanced tab allows you to alter the spacing, or padding, on the top and the bottom of the component. This establishes the space between this component and the page elements adjacent to it. It is set in pixels.

Advanced: Video Control

The Video Controls section of the Advanced tab is where you configure several aspects of how the video is displayed.

Alt text here

Start At: This sets where the video will start. It is set in seconds. If you want your video to start from the beginning, for example, you would set the value to 0.

Autoplay: If checked, the video will automatically play whenever someone visits the page. If this box is unchecked, a play button will be displayed over the video, giving the visitor the ability to start the video as desired.

Play on Loop: If checked, the video will play endlessly when someone is on the page. If unchecked, the video will play one time through and then stop.

Muted?: If clicked, any audio that accompanies the video will be muted by default. If not checked, the audio will play.

Show Player Controls: If clicked, the native video controls will display along with the video, allowing visitors to play, pause, and watch the video in full screen, among other things.

Video Width: If you set Display Size, in the Properties tab, to Specific Width and Height, this is where you enter the specific Video Width you want. It is expressed in pixels.

Video Height: If you set Display Size, in the Properties tab, to Specific Width and Height, this is where you enter the specific Video Height you want. It is expressed in pixels.

Advanced: Desktop

The Desktop section of the Advanced tab allows you to change additional aspects of the look of the Video component.

Text Background Color: If clicked, this enables the text background color function, allowing you to put a custom color background behind the text element shown over the video.

Color: The options are the same as noted above in the Heading Text section, except you are setting the color of the background, not the font.

Text Background Color: In the example above, we have created a text box with a grey background. A color background can be important. Due to the nature of videos, the background imagery may be constantly changing, which can make text difficult to read in spots. With a color background, you ensure the text is readable all the time.

Image Shader Overlay: This allows you to shade the video, which can bring attention to text elements. You can enter the amount of shade you want, as a percentage, or you can use the slider.

Advanced: Mobile

The Mobile section of the Advanced tab allows you to set additional aspects for how the Video component looks and behaves on mobile devices.

Text Background Color: If clicked, this enables the text background color function if viewed on mobile devices, allowing you to put a custom color background behind the text element shown over the video.

Color: The options are the same as noted above in the Heading Text section, except you are setting the color of the background, not the font.

Alt text here

Text Background Color: In the example above, we have created a text box with the same grey background as the desktop version. As you can see, the text box does not superimpose itself on the video while on mobile, so it may not be as important as on desktop, but can still be used to draw viewers to the text.
