Although it’s been years since videos have become an important part of our online lives (mostly thanks to Youtube), the format is getting more popular on a daily basis.
When it comes to web design and landing pages, nothing captures visitors’ attention like a great video! And if you open a few modern websites, you will find that many web designers replace hero images with videos. So why wouldn't you add one to your coming soon page?
How to Add a Video to Your Coming Soon Page?
Whether it’s Youtube, Vimeo, or any other source, you can feature your video on the coming soon page. You just need to select the video, adjust a few parameters and you’re done:
- Go to Settings -> Coming Soon PRO -> Design -> Video
- Choose Video Type (Youtube, Vimeo, Other)
- Copy and paste the video ID if you’re using Youtube or Vimeo. Write only the video ID. For YouTube, it’s alphanumeric (ie: ScMzIvxBSi4) and for Vimeo numeric (ie: 254733356)
- Save changes
If you are using a third-party video source, copy&paste the complete embed HTML code provided by your video hosting service. It will most probably begin and end with <iframe> tags.
If enabled, the video will automatically play on page load. Some visitors find this feature annoying so mind your page type when enabling it.
The clean interface looks great, very minimalistic, but removes most of the video controls. Especially on YouTube videos.
If enabled, the video won’t play any sounds. If you’re using the autoplay feature, muting the video is a good idea.
