Divi Video Module

  • Video URL – The Divi Video module lets you add video using two different methods. You can either upload your own video file from your computer by clicking the “Upload Video” button and selecting the desired file, or you can input an Video URL from a third party video source such as Youtube or Vimeo. Simply copy and paste the URL from your browser and paste it into the Video URL field and Divi will take care of the rest!.
  • Image Overlay URL – If you would like to define a custom video thumbnail image, which will be placed over the standard video interface with a custom play button to create a cleaner and more stylized appearance, then you can choose to do so using the Image Overlay field. This field allows you to either upload your own custom image, or let Divi automatically generate one from your video URL. Most of the video providers support this options, such as Youtube and Vimeo. Simply click the “Generate From Video” button and let Divi take care of the rest!
