Video Player Overview
If you don’t want to use YouTube or Wistia, Convertri’s in-built video player lets you display self-hosted videos on your pages for faster loading and smoother playback.
[PRO AND AGENCY ACCOUNTS ONLY] - Uploading a Video to Convertri
Pro and Agency users have access to Convertri’s upload feature, which lets you upload your videos to include in your pages.
You can find this in the Dashboard. Click on Videos in the left hand menu, then click Upload to upload your video. Once you’ve uploaded your video, you can then choose it as a source for your video element in the Page Builder.

In the Page Builder, open the elements tray and choose Media > Video.
Video source - enter the URL of your self-hosted video.
[PRO AND AGENCY ACCOUNTS ONLY] Select your video - choose your video from your uploaded media.

Tap to Fullscreen on Mobile - toggle on to let the user fullscreen the video with one tap on mobile.
[PRO AND AGENCY ACCOUNTS ONLY] - Video Skins
Pro and Agency account users can change the skin of their video player to better suit their page design.
With your video selected, go to Element Properties > Player Properties. Here, you can choose the video skin from the dropdown menu, choose background colour, and set a video thumbnail from the images you’ve uploaded to the Media Gallery.
