Full Bleed Video

Recommended Posts

Looking to create full bleed video on a site that does not autoplay.

Willing to go the banner route, but how can I disable autoplay?

Willing to go the video block route, but how can I make the thumbnail/video full bleed?

Currently in 7.1 but early in the build and it's a simple site so willing to adopt a 7.0 template if I have to.

If its a youtube video disable it from autoplaying in the video settings. Squarespace just embeds it has no control over the video itself. Disable auto play before you get your embed code. 

There are two ways to turn off autoplay:
  1. Switch the AUTOPLAY button off in the top right corner (above the Up next videos) so that it changes from blue to gray.
  2. Select the gear icon at the bottom of the video player to access its settings and then switch the Autoplay setting to off so that it changes from red to gray
  3. If its a vimeo video this is what you do.
