Video on Wix Websites


There are several ways to add video to a Wix website, including as a page background, a strip background, single video or using the Wix Video app. Note that in order to add YouTube or Vimeo videos, you must set embed options for those accounts.

Let's take a look at the video background options. Have you noticed that video backgrounds are becoming very popular. For example, a business website can have a video background that shows behind the scenes video.

To add a video as the page background, the video will cover the entire page. However, if you wish to limit the video to a certain area of the webpage, you would add a strip in that location and set the video as the strip background.

Page Background Video

You can add any of the free Wix videos or upload your own video to use as the page background.

Add Video as Page Background

  1. Click the Background icon in the Editor menu.

  2. Choose the Video option.

  3. Select a Wix video or find your uploaded video from the Media Manager.

  4. Click Change Background to add the video as your background.

Add Video as Strip Background

  1. Select the strip on the page.

  2. From the popup menu, click Change Strip Background.

  3. From the choices, click Video.

  4. Select a video from the Media Manager.

  5. Click the Change Background button to add the video to the strip.

Video as Page Element

You also have the option to add a video as a page element.

Add a Single YouTube or Vimeo Video

  1. From the Editor menu, click the Add icon.

  2. From the list of elements, choose Video.

  3. In the Add A Video menu, you have several options. We will use the first option, which is to add a Single Video Player.

    You can add a single video player for YouTube or Vimeo.

    You could add the Wix Video app

    You could add a third-party app

    When you choose the Single Video Player option, a new video box will be added to the page.

  4. Click the Change Video option from the menu above the video box.

    When the Video Settings window opens, search for your YouTube video or type your video's web address.

  5. Set the options for how the video will play.

    Autoplays on loading - on or off

    In a Loop - on or off

    When are controls shown - always, never or on hover.
