How Do I Add A Video Hero In Theme 3.0?

Here’s how to make a visual impact on your website with video heroes. 
  1. Go to website > website settings > theme > launch theme editor > heroes
  2. Once in the Heroes section, click either ‘create new’ or edit an existing hero.
  3. Once in the hero, scroll down to the ‘Background’ section
  4. You should see 2 new options: Video File and Video Embed URL
  5. Video File: Allows you to upload an MP4 format video. If the video is incompatible with a device, the background images will be used. The video will be muted due to browser restrictions.
  6. Video Embed URL: Embed a video from Vimeo or Youtube. The video must be publicly viewable. If the video is incompatible with a device, the background images will be used. The video will be muted due to browser restrictions.
  7. As a reminder stock images or stock videos requiring attribution, should never be used in the hero section.
