Video Carousel in 7.1?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

From everything I've been reading, it sounds like SquareSpace removed the ability to create a carousel style gallery of videos in 7.1.  I'm looking for a way that doesn't require CSS to do this, since I plan to subscribe to the basic personal plan.  It seems odd they would REMOVE a feature with the latest engine, but if there's not an easy workaround I'll probably just look elsewhere for my website hosting.  Thanks!

@mgvfx This is very frustrating, if you find a workaround I would really appreciate it. Trying to add client logo as a scrolling marque - but the scrolling feature doesn't allow you to add images... what a waste, as it would have solved the issue. 

 

@tuanphan any other suggestions? This doesn't work.

Scrolling like this? (auto scroll)

You can use a gallery block and upload the video URL there via Vimeo or YouTube. Here's an article detailing how to do it: https://www.bycrawford.com/blog/uploading-videos-to-a-squarespace-gallery

Only thing is with 7.1, you may need the lazy summaries plugin from Square Websites to make this happen if Squarespace has removed the video upload feature.

Except that the 7.1 Gallery Block is not generally available. It is only available to Circle members.

That's why I said this...
