Why use video sliders in the first place?

Video sliders are a great way to increase user engagement and showcase your video content in an eye-catching manner. By adding a video slider to your website, you can:

Grab your audience’s attention: Video content is more engaging than static images, so a video slider is a great way to grab your audience’s attention and keep them interested in your content.

Highlight your best content: A video slider allows you to showcase your best video content in a prominent location on your website, making it easy for your audience to find and enjoy.
Improve website aesthetics: A well-designed video slider can add a touch of professionalism and style to your website, making it more attractive to your audience.

Creating a Modula video slider

Now that you have Modula up and running, it’s time to dive into the exciting world of creating a video slider that will make your website pop with engaging content. 

Before getting to the video slider part, we have to create an image slider.

If this is your first time creating a gallery with Modula, I have this awesome guide for creating an image gallery with Modula.

Now let’s jump straight into the actual steps:

✔️ Uploading or Selecting Images: To begin, you’ll need to upload your desired images or select images from your WordPress Media Library. Select suggestive images for each video to make it easier to know which image corresponds to which video.

Upload images or select from library

✔️ Adding Video URLs: Once your images are ready, it’s time to incorporate videos into your slider. Click on the edit icon for each image, and scroll down until you find the “Video URL” section. Here, you have three options to choose from:

  1. YouTube video link: If your video is hosted on YouTube, paste the video’s URL into the Video URL field.
  2. Vimeo video link: Copy and paste the video’s URL into the Video URL field for Vimeo-hosted videos.
  3. Self-hosted video link: If your video is stored in your WordPress Media Library, enter the link to the video in the Video URL field.
Add video URL from YouTube

✔️ Saving changes: After pasting the appropriate video link, click the “Save & Close” button to save your changes for that particular image. Repeat this process for all the pictures you want to include in your video slider, ensuring each associated image has its respective video URL attached.

Save editing image metadata

✔️ Selecting the gallery type: Once you’re satisfied with your image and video selection, scroll down to the “General Settings” section. Here you can choose the Slider Gallery Type that will turn your boring video gallery into a lovely video gallery carousel.

✔️ Customization: In terms of customizing your video gallery, you have a few options. You can loop videos, add borders around the video slider, change the play icon color, use a custom one, make the gallery loop infinitely, slider auto-play, and much more. Play around with the settings until you develop a video slider that fits you best. Below are just a few you can play around with:
