  1. Site URL: https://www.zachkononov.com/press-media Hi all! I'm trying to embed a YouTube video to my website with a URL that starts the video at a specific timestamp. I pulled the URL from the YouTube video at that specific timestamp (2:06), but when I play the embedded video, it always starts at 1:45. On my boyfriend's laptop, it starts at 0:00 sometimes and 1:45 other times. I have changed the URL to different timestamps as a test, and it still always starts at 1:45 or 0:00. The page with the video is here: https://www.zachkononov.com/press-media. The video in question is the second video on the left, at bottom of the page. Regular video URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-sJCxXyHg4 Timestamp video URL: https://youtu.be/4-sJCxXyHg4?t=126
  2. Site URL: https://www.nickdavid.co.uk/film-new Hi, My goal is to try and find a way for the videos in this gallery block on this page to autoplay. My question is if there is a way at all for them to autoplay in gallery mode or do they need to be embedded directly into the page? They are in a grid gallery to make it easy for the client to upload themselves. I want to try and make one of the scenarios below to work: Scenario 1: One or two videos autoplay when opening the page that I choose by selecting autoplay in the embed settings (when embedding to gallery). Scenario 2: Randomly chooses a video to autoplay in the grid. all videos are embedded in gallery with the option of autoplay turned on. The site decides to autoplay a random video for a few seconds and switches over to another one that autoplays. Thank you for your support. Let me know if I can clarify any more.
  3. Hi, I am looking to build a simple website as an online investment packet. I'm wondering which templates would be the right ones to start out with in order to have the following features. Upon clicking the link, the viewer is taken to webpage. At the top is a fullbleed Vimeo video (with all Vimeo controls), and as you scroll down there is text and a slideshow below that. I have been playing with the Lange and Sofia templates. In the first one, I can get the fullbleed video with the Vimeo controls, but I cannot make the video be the first thing seen when the viewer lands on the page - there is always a white space between the video and top of the site. With Sofia, I can get the full screen landing page video, but it is only a background video. It is very important that the viewers can choose when to start the video, and full screen it if they wish. Does anyone have any advice on how to achieve this with a Squarespace template? Or maybe a couple modifications? I've attached a rough mock-up for what I am going for. Thank you in advance!
  4. Site URL: https://mauve-fife-pcpk.squarespace.com/weneednewfriends I'm trying to have a video light box pop out when you click on an image. I think using featherlight is the right option but I'm not that experienced in web design and how to set that up. The password to the website is "123" This is what I hope for it to look like: https://www.amfilms.ca/portfolio-item/lego/ The photo on my website is the one at the top of the page of the 4 guys sitting on the couch.
  5. Site URL: https://www.pixelcrunchmedia.com/ Hello, I have an autoplay video on mute playing as my website loads, everything is perfect on the desktop version, I have used a code block so it plays at 300% the size so it fits the site, i would like to play at 100% size for the mobile version of my site, is there a way to do this ? Thanks in advance
  6. Site URL: https://cyclovfx.squarespace.com Hello, I have a question. if it is possible to open a video (link) as a "popup" centered on the same page with half transparent black solid background (like dimmed down the current page). I was hoping to get it working at least for the first Company Showreel on the Homepage without to open a new page like in the current version. current side pass: CYCLOXXX Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  7. Site URL: https://www.vandersteurdesign.com/flash-plus-music Trying to lose Vimeo as a video host by using Squarespace video blocks for a few short vids. (Great new feature, btw.) I have non-standard aspect ratios but want the videos to fill the width of the blocks without cropping. Have not found the right code yet, if it exists. So far, the SQ videos float within the block, revealing the gradient extending out to the edge of the block. If I extend the video using black bars to a 3x2 ratio (or whatever), it will probably fill the block but the vid will still be smaller than I'd like. Could use more info on these new video blocks. In the meantime, can anybody help me : • Fill the squarespace-hosted video block --side to side--with a non-standard aspect ratio? • Attaching a screenshot of a Vimeo embed and a SQ video block below it. Thanks. -gary
  8. Site URL: https://www.attachelondon.com/ Hello, I have a full banner video on my website and initially it was loading perfectly when I had uploaded the video file to squarespace however it was coming up blurry on mobile. I then uploaded the video to youtube and linked the video via link at 1080p 60fps and that resolved the blurring issue. Now the video is loading with a 3sec delay on the mobile so it shows the text before the video comes up. Is there anyway I can fix this? Any advice will be very much appreciated.
  9. Site URL: https://www.subjectresources.com Hello! I have a one minute video I would like to play when a user clicks on the 'play button icon' on my homepage. Can someone please walk me through how I can add this to my squarespace site? Many thanks!
  10. Is anyone having issues adding YouTube links when it comes to video blocks and/or video pages? I'm getting this error.
  11. Hello, I am working on a website where I need to add a video from Youtube as a Banner. Everything works fine but the quality of the video in the banner is really low and all pixelated. I'd like those to be at least at 720, better at 1080. How can I fix this? This is the video I am embedding: I've tried with this URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIIJXp-gumY and with this: https://youtu.be/BIIJXp-gumY Thank you!
  12. Site URL: https://www.wunderarchitectes.fr/ Hello, URL : www.wunderarchitectes.fr I don't understand why the background video I uploaded (file, not youtube or vimeo link) on the header is in good quality on desktop and very low on mobile? Any help on how to address that? Thanks! Cloé
  13. Site URL: https://www.aireelography.ca I have a video on our home page as Code Injection. it autoplays and loops fine on desktop <center> <video autoplay loop width=1280; height: auto > <source src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/62aa4929c26e8132135830a4/t/62d806511b9c3c0b8dd2f62c/1658324572985/Home-web-page-intro.mp4" type="video/mp4"/> </video> </center> iPhone format is terrible (need to scroll and all other elements are pushed to left). I would like to modify the video so it displays on the mobile iPhone correctly in Portrait (I guess using Media query) and have it play only when user clicks start button (so no autoplay or loop). Desktop autoplay and loop should remain Also adding text to video will help as well thanks in advance
  14. Site URL: https://eugenia-grace.squarespace.com/ The password to the site is: egrace I am wondering if it is possible to remove the very quick flash of the fallback image as soon as you load in the website. It seems that the fallback image is shown for a split-second as the video background loads in. Can I replace this flashing image with a simple solid white background instead of the fallback image? Currently, I am using the fallback image for the mobile version of the site, so I cannot delete it. I am using the following custom CSS to make the fallback image on this background display when the site width is set to 767px or less: ----------- /* Mobile show fallback image */ @media screen and (max-width:767px) { [data-section-id="618bdd50e7453731cdf1aa61"] .sqs-video-background-native__video-player.video-player { display: none !important; } [data-section-id="618bdd50e7453731cdf1aa61"] img { opacity: 1 !important; } } ---------------- I noticed that when I remove the fallback image altogether, the site displays the site background color (white) while the video background takes a fraction of a second to load in. I would like this to happen, but I do not wish to remove the fallback image, since I am using it for the mobile version of the site. Thanks in advance, Matt
  15. Site URL: https://www.overlandready.eu/ Hello, Could You, please, advice, whats happening and how to increase the quality for background videos on mobile? (very pixelated and dull...) Thanks & regards, Gerda
  16. Site URL: https://www.thefabricant.com/ Hi, I have a video on our home page as Code Injection atm. I would love to include a part in the code to make the video responsive to the size of the browser window. This is easy to do with the video block and Vimeo link, however I need to be able to do it with the Code Injection. Below is the code I'm using now. <center> <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/680815668??autoplay=1&loop=1&autopause=0&background=1&color=ffffff&controls=2&portrait=0" width="1170" height= "600" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; fullscreen"allowfullscreen></iframe> </center> Here's the embed code I'm getting from Vimeo <div style="padding:50% 0 0 0;position:relative;"><iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/680815668?h=b5fa6fda37&amp;badge=0&amp;autopause=0&amp;player_id=0&amp;app_id=58479" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; fullscreen; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;" title="The Fabricant - Digital Fashion House"></iframe></div><script src="https://player.vimeo.com/api/player.js"></script> What do I need to change in the original code to get the responsiveness in it? AND bonus question. Can I add text on top of the video?
  17. Site URL: https://wedge-tomato-jyh6.squarespace.com/sillanalla Helloo! I have videos on my site that I would like to be played directly on the site instead of redirecting to youtube. So instead of two clicks just one. How could I make this happen?
  18. I have a YouTube background video that doesn't look great on mobile. Can I use a completely different YouTube video as the background video on mobile?
  19. Hello. I'd like to suggest a new feature for Squarespace 7.1. "Live Photo" style image/video galleries Much like with iOS live Photo - I'd like to create a still image gallery, and when the visitor hovers their cursor on an image (or, for mobile devices, holds their finger on the image), the image changes to a video and plays automatically. This is an example of what I would like to achieve, and I think you'll agree it's pretty effective. It's a Wordpress website. (Note: Not all images in this example website work as videos): https://palladianmedia.com/built-environment/ If this has been posted the wrong place then please let me know where new feature suggestions can be posted?
  20. Site URL: https://www.graemefordham.com/motion Hi, There a line of text on the end screen after the video plays that says 'more from Graeme Fordham' that I would like to stop appearing. Vimeo themselves don't offer a solution to remove it and it ultimately takes people away from my site, which I don't want. Is there a way to css or jquery it away? The other features of my chosen end screen are great...just this one is a problem. To see the video in question, head to the link above 'motion' and click on the 2nd video down, then you can scrub to the end to see the end screen in question. I would be very happy for a solution. Thanks, Graeme
  21. Trying to make it appear like the video block is part of a gallery but is in fact a video block added on top of a gallery. Also trying to figure out how to have it autoplay and have the margins similar to what it is in the gallery.
  22. Site URL: https://hexagon-seahorse-9ths.squarespace.com/portfolio I have just created a video collection page. I like how everything is categorised and laid out. But I wonder is it possible to: 1. Open the videos in a lightbox and autoplay instead of sending the user to another page. I'd like less clicks for my users. (Also would be nice to overlay the thumbnail with a video play icon) or if not possible then: 2. Send the user to the video page as normal and have it autoplay https://hexagon-seahorse-9ths.squarespace.com/portfolio pass: portfolio Thanks Terry
  23. Site URL: https://roadrunner-tuna-ex3b.squarespace.com/home Currently the text is above it but i want it on the actual video, i had it before but for some reason it now shows above and i cant change it back. Password: Test1 Thank you!
