Can we directly link a video from the project folder?

I desperately need to be able to put a video in a site I am designing. Customer needs it now. The built-in video control does not allow the scaling of a video. I have tried to use an HTML object and embed the youtube code. This works but the video is not responsive. The video is only viewable in the desktop view. I was wondering if there was a way to place a video file in the project folder and then link to it by an src command?

Hi Lemuel,

Now our developers are working on the issue with resizing the video control. It should be fixed in the next updates.
Unfortunately there is no direct option to upload video file into the theme and link to it. You can do that manually after exporting. You can try to resize the video control separately in each responsive mode, that should help to achieve the desired proportion.

I have found a workaround. It is a bit convoluted but it works. From within WordPress, I uploaded my video. I then created a normal page and used the WordPress built-in function to add the video to a page. I then looked at the page in text format and found the code that was generated to embed the video ie the shortcode. I copied that code and then on my nice page I inserted a shortcode to where I want the video to be placed and pasted the copied shortcode into it. Worked like a charm.

The new version of Nicepage is better. The whole video now displays in the default frame size. However, if I try to resize the video it becomes larger than the frame and does not recover.

Was the latest update to the desktop version also applied to the plugin? I tried it with the plugin and the update did not seem to be there.

Hi Lemuel,

You can check the available plug-in updates under the Plugin tab in your admin panel. If there is an Update option near the Nicepage plug-in, then you can press it to update it to the latest version:

It has not been implemented as I still have the same issue within the desktop version.

Hi Koen,

Could you please explain in details what exactly is not working with the video control? You can attach your project and also several screenshots showing the problem. You can open a new private case if needed.
