To upload your own videos to your Wix site, you will first need to upload them to YouTube or Vimeo and retrieve the video's URL.


To add a video to your site: From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click Media > click Video > click the video box to open the pop-up window > click Settings > under Video URL, enter the URL > click Update.

Note: If you post a video from YouTube, make sure that your video is set to Public and that the Allow Embedding box is checked (in Advanced Settings) in your YouTube video's settings.

Note: Make sure not to use the video's full screen link as it will not work in Wix's video player.

We also have a number of video apps in the Wix App Market. Check out the following apps: ViewBix, TubePress and iPlayerHD. Click here for more information about adding apps to your site.

    I have an image gallery but I want to be able to add youtube videos in the same way and size as the images. I can't seem to add the vidoes, The only thing I can do so far is to add a video but separately and I can not size it to be the same as the image thumbnails because it stops at the minimum thumbnail size. 

    Please help,

      Hi simlenzlipitch,

      I've checked your site and I was able to recreate the issue you've mentioned. However, please note that when scrolling the site all the way down, you can click the full screen option as well as remove the ads etc. as you can see here:

      This issue occurs as a result of two settings on your site:

      1. You footer is quite large, thus when covering quite a large part of the video when in the natural position of the site (i.e when not scrolling). For this reason you can click the red play button in the video but not the control buttons at the bottom of the video. 

      2. You've set your footer at a fixed position, thus it remains in the same 'covering' position when scrolling down a bit - which causes the issue to persists. 

      In order to fix this issue please narrow the footer using the drag handle (the button located on the footers frame) and deselect the fixed footer setting.

      Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

    Hi. Thank you for answering my last question. I have vimeo videos on my site. For youtube videos, there's a progress or running time bar at the bottom so you could skip ahead or move the video forward, but I was playing the vimeo videos and there's only a play button and a full screen option. Is there a way to have it the same way as youtube?

      The time bar is available to vimeo videos as well. You simply have to place the mouse over it and it will show.

      Should you have any further questions, please let us know! Thanks, Customer Solutions

      Hi jaxserena,


      Thank you for contacting us. I'm not sure I understand your question.

      As explained in the best reply above, and in the video, you can upload videos by adding a video URL that was previously uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo. 


      We also have a number of video apps in the Wix App Market that enable you to upload videos directly to your site. Check out the following apps: ViewBix, TubePress and iPlayerHD. Click here for more information about adding apps to your site.


      Feel free to contact us with any additional questions you may have.

      All the best, Ellie

    My youtube and vimeo links were fine in the editor. But when I went to preview, all of them had a big white screen with an exclamation point on it. And now when I went back to editor, they still have that screen. What do I do?
