Video

Add a previously uploaded video to your page. Or upload the video first and then select it to use it as video on your page. Read all about how you do this and what image formats are supported in the media section in the explanation of the designer.

Processing After Upload

Web browsers cannot play all video formats: all of them support mp4 and most of them webm. If you upload your video in one of these formats, you can use it right away in your Bizplay page. A thumbnail of the video will be created in a few minutes.

If you upload the video in any other format, then Bizplay needs to convert it into a format that's usable on the web, which will take some time (on average about twice the duration of the video). You don't have to wait for this to finish: you can add the video to your page and continue working.

If conversion of your video fails or you like to convert your own videos to mp4 yourself before uploading, then we recommend using the free tool Handbrake.

When page is shown Select what the video should do when the page is shown (during playback):
  • Play once from beginning: when the page is shown, start video playback from the time configured in "Start playing at (sec)". When playback ends, the app will turn black.
  • Continue playing: when the page is shown, continue playing the video from the position where it was last stopped.

And finally there are a number of generic app properties that you can configure that you'll find on many other elements as well.
