There are two different types of videos:

Inline videos are displayed between text and stay the size they appear when the play-button is pressed. 

Pop-up videos are displayed the same as inline videos, but they expand into a pop-up when the play-button is pressed. Pop-up videos require adding an image to represent the video. This is the recommended video style since it makes the video appear larger.

As you can see below, the video on the left is an example of an Inline video, while the video on the right is and example of a Pop-up video.

Pop-up Video

Within a content block:

  1. Start with a new grid cell; if needed, add a new grid cell
  2. Set the grid cell width to any width
  3. Select "Video?" Yes option
  4. Enter the Video URL (should be Youtube, Vimeo, or Facebook)
  5. Create an image using the Spot image sizes (see below) that is consistent with the size of the content block. IMPORTANT: when providing a Video Image for a pop-up style video, you must enter Video Image Alt Text or you will recieve an error message; see Troubleshooting: Cascade Error
  6. Select "No - I want it to pop up in a lightbox" for recommended pop-up video
  7. Select light or dark for the play button - this depends on the darkness or lightness of the video image you are using
