Adding Videos

Videos offer a way to showcase media you want to share with your client, and they're a great way to add highly visual interactive elements to your Qwilr Pages.

Adding a Video Block to your Qwilr Page

First, add a new block and choose the Video option.

From there, you can add a header and text above your video. To add the video itself, look for the URL section.

Qwilr supports videos hosted on Wistia, Brightcove, YouTube, and Vimeo. If your video is hosted on another service, you'll need to use the use an Embed block instead. 

Note: If your videos are set to Private, only people who have been given access will be able to view them in your Qwilr Page.
