Adding videos to your Jimdo website is quite simple! We support videos which have been uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo.
To add a video, simply click on a picture (for example, in your image block) while you’re in edit mode, and then click on the play button (Choose video). You can now insert the link to your video. Make sure to check the box to confirm.
If you insert a video into your cover block, it’ll be displayed in a large area. The video will play automatically, but with the sound turned off. This also applies to the large image block.
- Make sure your video is set to "Public" in the privacy settings at YouTube or Vimeo. A video that is set to "Private" cannot be viewed by your visitors, even though you have embedded it on your website
- It is not possible to upload a video directly to your Jimdo website
- Videos will only play automatically if the respective cookie (Functional > Youtube) is accepted when opening your website
