Add Youtube and Other Videos to Square Online

Square-Online-Youtube-Video-Embeds-EN

Adding videos to your website can add visual appeal and make your site more engaging. In Square Online, you can embed video directly from Youtube, providing a fast and easy way to add more media to your site. You can also add videos from other hosts using embeddable code.

Note: There isn't an option to upload your own video files to your site at this time. If you have your own video file you'd like to add to your site, upload it to a video host first and then add it to your site using one of the methods below. Additionally, video backgrounds for sections aren't supported at this time.

  1. In your Square Online site editor, open the page you want to add video to.

  2. Select +Add > Section, and choose a Video section for Youtube.

  3. Select the section to see the different aspects of it you can customize further, and add your Youtube URL to the editing panel.

  4. Complete your edits and Publish your site to see the changes live.

Embed Videos from Other Hosts

If you have videos you want to add from a different host besides Youtube, you can also add those videos with embeddable code. To do so:
