Video element can't pull data from CMS field?


Hi there,

I’m having trouble getting the native video component pull its link from the CMS field that was set up for that purpose in my Collection list. Do I, like for lightboxes, need to set up some custom code aswell or am I missing something ? :slight_smile:

Thank you for your help !

Read only link


To connect to a video element from the CMS, you need to use a Video Link field element and not a generic Link field.

In the designer and editor, after inputing a valid video url into the video link field you will see a preview.

If you want more control over the way a video is displayed use the embed element, paste in the youtube embed code, put your dynamic cms youtube link in, and then adjust the embed code for style and playback controls.


awesome, thank you @matthewpmunger :slight_smile:
