Problem with video link in CMS

Help please…

I have 201 exercises that I am trying to have a lightbox pop up with the video of the exercise being performed. I can get it to work if I do one at time. I imported them via a spreadsheet and when the lightbox link is pressed I only get a spinning wheel.

Thanks

When you import video links from a spreadsheet, the embed codes for the videos are not generated. You have to go into the CMS and manually update each video link field (e.g. add a space and remove it), then Webflow will generate the embed code for the videos.

An alternative is to use PowerImporter’s CSV Update tool to import your spreadsheet into your CMS. PowerImporter will generate the embed codes for all your video links.

Once you have all the embed codes, then the lightbox should work.

You are the man Marc!
