Have you used Vimeo?
Embedding videos from another host like Vimeo helps your site load faster, enables visitors to share your videos, and provides multiple options for video hosting
Alex is a video director, therefor he used a lot of embedded videos on his Squarespace website…
Let’s see what was his requirements
For an example of what I’m trying to achieve, see here:
I contacted Squarespace and they tell me this is done via developer mode – I am looking for someone familiar with Squarespace developer mode customization to do this.
What did I do to achieve?
One thing you should now, to make a video auto play on all device, you should mute it when playing, vimeo can provide the options, so I suggest him to update his embedded iframe url on the video
- I used jQuery select the video elements on the page
- Have a covered mask over the video with a play button icon
- Take advantage of vimeo player for trigger video play on click
Here is how the final outcome
The output is quite impressive to client, he was very satisfied
