How to Add Videos to Soliloquy

Would you like to create a video slider? Soliloquy comes equipped ready for you to start adding your YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia and self-hosted videos inside the slider.


Step 1 – Create or edit your slider

Your first step is to create a new slider or edit an existing one. You can follow along with our documentation for creating your first slider.

Step 2 – Add your videos

Next, from the slider edit screen, select the Select Files from Other Sources button from the Native Slider section.

Click Select Files from Other Sources

A window will open and you can click the Insert Videos link on the left and begin adding your videos by completing the required fields to add your videos.

Add videos to your slider by clicking the Add Video link from the sidebar

If you’re videos are from YouTube or Vimeo, Soliloquy will grab the poster image for your video to use as a placeholder. If you’re using Self Hosted Videos, you’ll need to manually set a placeholder image for your video.

Step 3 – Publish or Update your slider

Finally, click Publish or Update on your slider to save the changes.

And that’s it!
