Video Cover

Full-page video with text overlay

How To Use It

Use this template to add impressive video introductions or cool animations. The video will fill the whole page and can include a text overlay. Videos must be in .mp4 format at a 16:9 ratio.

It's recommended to keep the video size below 10MB to avoid exceeding the story size limit of 100MB.

In stories, please use videos sparingly to avoid lagging. Use Streams when your content is video-rich.

Video Controls

Controls (options for the user to play, pause, adjust sound, etc). By default, controls are not added.

Autoplay Video

By default, videos autoplay as soon as the user opens the page. If you do not choose to autoplay, a play button will be added.

When the video ends... Decide what happens at the end of the video: Play again (default), Stop, Go to next page.

Loop Keyframe (In Seconds)

Use this option if you want your video to loop after a certain point - the video will play in full the first time and can then play again at a specific point based on the delay indicated in seconds. For example, if you only want to play intro effects once, you can use keyframe settings to loop only the part of the video that does not contain the intro.
