Incorporating video into square websites
You can ( and should!) add video to your Squarespace website. Watching a video explaining your products or services in a groove can give your audience a rapid start to your company and increase commitment and revenue. Wallpaper video on pages often adds a neat note to the overall usability feel.
The Squarespace does not allow video to be uploaded directly, only the ability to be embedded from a third-party delivery point. For embedding video in Squarespace, you must first generate your video and post it to video share sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Animoto or Wistia. Independently, there is a knack to ensure a quicker download to any video site, so you can quickly add video to Squarespace sites - converting video data to a contemporary file size such as MP34 and shrinking it by compression.
It is free for up to 5 video clips per months. Pick or drag-and-drop your video into the Convert field. Use the Web Chooser to optimise your video for Squarespace. When you are not sure which choices to make, you can run some testing with different sets of parameters and playback the resulting video once it has been converted.
When you don't like an outgoing video, just go back to Stage 2, adjust some preferences and reconvert the video again. Choose Upload and Share to have your video uploaded after conversion onto YouTube or Vimeo as well. Otherwise, you will have to delay until the video is handled and then store it on your computer from where you can directly download it to one of the 4 video hosters supported by Squarespace.
Once you have uploaded the video to a video sharing site such as Vimeo or YouTube, you will need to do the following in Squarespace for the video to appear on your website. Don't use the embed or share url below the video because these are not working in Squarespace.
Choose Copy and past the URL of your YouTube or Vimeo video, choose a miniature image, add a caption and describe. It' s that simple, for some extra information and extra choices around embedding video in Squarespace, read their tech articles on the topic. When you are looking for a way to watch video from your audience, customer, customers, consumers, end user, supporters or the general audience, read our video recording addition to your Squarespace page using our Video-API tutorial.
Up to 5 video edits per months are free, and you can recommend your friend to get additional free video or update to our free video update schedule.
