Video Provider

Select the Video provider for your Videos for example if you want to create Gallery out of YouTube videos then select YouTube. Currently the plugin supports

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Facebook

Gallery Type

With this option you can control the display of your Gallery. The plugin currently has 3 modes

  • Slide Show
  • Film Strip
  • Thumbnail (Light box)

Enter the Video ID

Enter the ID of Video you want to add in the Gallery. If you are not sure how to get the ID of videos on different platform then please visit the common questions section. You can have 6 videos per Gallery which I think is sufficient.

But in case you need more then plugin can be customized as per your need. Note using too many videos on a page may significantly impact page load time which is not good for optimal user experience.

In case you do not know how to get Video ID of a particular video then read this article.

Animation

The plugin supports different Animation modes. You can select any one of the animation modes for your Videos or Video thumbnail

  • Top
  • Bottom
  • Left
  • Right
  • Opacity
  • Zoom
  • Fading
  • Random

If you select Random animation mode then you will have different animations to different videos or video thumbnails.
