When you publish a video, a video player page will automatically be created. The player page appears on the front end where the video is made available for playback on-demand. You can choose a layout for the player page and include elements such as text, attachments (downloadable files), a cover image, a background image, etc.
There are three unique layouts to choose from. See the table below to learn what you can configure in each layout.
|Video with Right Related List||No||Yes|
In this page layout, you can display a video only, or a video with text and attachments.
See the two examples below to learn more about the Default View layout.
Default View with Video Only
The video player is displayed on the right A. On the left B, the video’s title, publish date, and description (see Configuring Additional Video Display Options for more information), and category are displayed. If there are attachments C and related videos D, they’ll appear below the video player.
Default View with Video, Downloadable Attachments, and Related Videos
This is an example of how the player page will appear on the front end if you’ve added attachments (downloadable files) and if related videos apply. The video player is displayed on the right A. On the left B, the video’s title, publish date, and description, and category (if applicable) are displayed. If there are attachments C and related videos D, they’ll appear below the video player.
Video with Right Related List
In this layout, the video player appears on the left. A few related videos will appear on the right side of the page. The video description and downloadable attachments (if applicable) will appear below the video player.
You can display related videos in any video player page. Related videos is an element of the page that displays similar videos based on how attributes are assigned to video content.
For example, if an attribute has been assigned to a video and that same attribute has also been assigned to other video content, then the other video content may be displayed in the related video list. The display is randomized.
The more of the same attributes that you assign to two videos, the more they’re related. If no attributes have been assigned to a video, then no related videos will display on its player page.
