VideoBox was designed to support videos from almost any video site. We’ve tested it with videos from numerous popular video platforms, including: YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook Video, Instagram Video, DailyMotion, Brightcove, Amazon S3, and many others.
When you embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo or DailyMotion VideoBox will automatically generate a thumbnail for your post, so you don’t have to add manually a Featured Image.
Starting with VideoBox 2.0 update, you can easily upload videos to your own website and have them played nicely at the top in individual posts:
View an example of self-hosted video.
Embedding a video at the top in posts is very simple. You can embed a video in 3 different ways:
1. Embed Code (iframe)
2. Self-hosted Video
3. Video URL (oEmbed Support)
It’s very easy to embed a video from popular websites like YouTube or Vimeo, as you can only insert the URL of the video, and the theme will do the rest. This thing is possible thanks to the oEmbed integration, which at the moment supports 34 video websites.
If you have a lot of posts with videos and want to show them at the top, then a new option added in the new version will do the hard work for you. No need to edit each post individually and enter the video URL or embed code manually.
Just go to the Theme Options page and under the Video Settings section you’ll find there the following option: Automatically detect first video in posts and display it at the top.
Once you enable it, it will automatically detect first video from all your posts and show it in the featured area from the top.
Pretty easy, right?
Just like many popular news websites and even Facebook, with VideoBox now you can have the video from the top in single posts to stay in a corner on your choice when users scroll the page. This feature is supported in the new version by YouTube, Vimeo and DailyMotion videos.
Additional options for this feature can be found in the Theme Options page:
Starting with VideoBox 2.1.0 you can see all the Featured Posts on a separate page and change their order by drag & drop. From the same page you remove specific posts to appear in the homepage slideshow.
VideoBox includes options for video player when you embed a video from YouTube or Vimeo.
As can be seen from the screenshot above, for YouTube videos you can now hide easier the Related Videos from the end of a video or during the pause. You can also configure each video individually to autoplay when the page is opened.
Vimeo API offers more control for video player, and in the following screenshot you can see available options for each video:
On the front page you can display a tab with the most popular videos, along with recent posts. The popular tab can be customized, so you can choose which posts to display: posts with the most views or the most comments. You can also choose over which period posts should be displayed – for example: most popular posts from all time, from this year or from this week.
The front page includes multiple widget areas in which you can add any widgets you want, including the built-in ones in the theme with carousels or featured categories.
VideoBox comes packaged with different custom widgets, including the Carousel Widget, a highly customizable widget that can be placed in different locations. It’s great for displaying posts from one or more categories.
This widget includes an option to select the aspect ratio of thumbnails, which makes it to work great with movie posters.
Using the Theme Customizer you can easily change the position of elements in the the header, including the direction from which opens the Sidebar Panel. If you’re not a fan of the hamburger menu icon, you can easily disable it and display the menu in the header directly.
The Live Customizer allows you to make changes to the theme and get an immediate preview. Customize Colors, Fonts, Background, Logo, Menu, Widgets and more, all with a live preview.
