To add a video to a web story's page, open it in the builder. Then, click on Video in the elements toolbar at the top of the editing zone.

To add a video, you can either import it in your Gallery or choose one from Pexel's bank.

  • To import it, Record or Upload the video from your device. Or paste the video's URL in the search bar, it will also be added to your web story's page (and to your Gallery).

  • You can also use Pexel to add a video. Click on the Pexel tab, make a search and click on the chosen video to add it to your web story's page.

To edit the added video, use the video editing pane on the right side of the builder. This pane allows you to:

  • Change the proportions of the video.

Original will keep the original dimensions of the imported video.
Contain will keep the whole video in the video box.
Cover will cover the video box with the video. With Cover, some parts of the edges of the video might not appear in the box as its goal is to cover it.

  • Rotate the video.

  • Change the video's opacity.

  • Add a border with a personalized color, size, and radius (which is the rounding).

  • Add animations to the video.

You can also add subtitles to your videos.

⚠️ Important

Video files larger than 300Mb cannot be added to your web story's page.

If you want to upload a video greater than 300Mb, you can compress it.

We recommend using freeconvert to compress your videos, as it enables you to compress them no more than necessary, so your videos' quality isn't affected more than it should be.

To make an optimal compression of your video file larger than 700Mb, enter the advanced settings of freeconvert. Select the "Target a file size (Mb)" Compression Method in freeconvert.com, and manually put 290 in the "Target size (Mb)" field.

Once your video's compressed, you can download it and upload it into the builder.
