How large a video can up upload to the CSS Manage Files

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

I have a 32mb file that will not upload when I go to Custom CSS, Manage Custom Files, when I try to upload a 32mb mp4 file, it will not upload. The largest one I can upload is 12mb. I have to do it this way because I must autoplay and loop each video on my site. To accomplish this, I add an embed or code block, add the code snippet from what comes out of the Custom CSS and add other code to make it autoplay and loop.

What is the largest file I can upload?

Squarespace have just added new playback settings to videos uploaded directly to Squarespace so you'll be better uploading the video directly to a Video Block. The new settings include autoplay and loop (as well as mute and hide controls) - see below:

This is currently being rolled out to all sites, so if you don't have the new features now, you should have them tomorrow 🙂.

Thank you! When did they add this new feature? I had to write my own code and use either Code or Embed blocks to autoplay and loop.

Can I ask one more question? How do I change the aspect ratio of my videos? When I hover over them most show a rectangular area filling in a gray vignette on the sides even though my video is square.

Video Blocks don't have an aspect ratio setting (yet!) so setting an aspect ratio still requires code.
