Tokyo - Components | Video

"Video" component allows us to add a local video (which is added to the content and can be played off-line) or an on-line video (which requires an Internet connection, as it is hosted in YouTube, Vimeo or other streaming platforms).

This component is added within the screens by default (see here), but it can also be added inside other components (for example, inside a Pop-up, a Row, etc.).

You will find this component in the group of "Multimedia" components.

Setup process

1. Access to the "Properties" tab. Go to "View" property and select if you want to add a local video (saved in the unit Resources folder) or an on-line video.

2.  If you choose "Local video", you will be required to configure at least the following properties:

  • Resource: mp4 video file.
  • Cover: This property allows adding a cover image that will be shown while the video is not being played.

Additionally, you can configure other properties (see the list at the bottom of this page).

3. If you choose an "On-line video", you will have to configure at least a "URL address" from YouTube, Vimeo or other streaming platforms like Brightcove. Additionally, you can configure other properties (see the list at the bottom of this page).

4.  Additionally, you can go to the "Add" tab to include a "Caption" for the video.
