What file formats are supported?
Our Video Element supports .MP4, .MOV, and .FLV file types.
Why is my video loading slowly?
We recommend that videos be no larger than 100mb in file size. Larger video files will take longer to load depending on a users internet connection. For larger videos, please use the YouTube Element.
Why is the picture for the video appearing blank?
Before the video is played, the very first frame is shown. Often times this a blank or empty frame. The video will have to be correct outside the platform within a video editing program to adjust the first frame and then placed back in.
