    Or, add a new Video Feature first: click Build from the left-side menu, drag and drop the Video Icon onto a placeholder on your website page, then click on the Feature to display the editing options.
  10. Under Settings, enter the Video Link in the field provided.
    You can enable/disable the Autoplay and Allow Full Window options, as you prefer.

  12. Under Preview, click Add Custom Preview to set the Video Cover Image using any of the following methods:

    • Upload to Sitebeat
      If the Video Cover Image is in your computer, drag and drop it into the pop-up window or click browse to manually look for the Image from your list of folders and upload it to Sitebeat.
    • Access Sitebeat My Photos
      If the Video Cover Image was previously uploaded in Sitebeat, click the My Photos tab from the pop-up window and select the picture.
    • Access the Cloud
      If the Video Cover Image is in another online account, click the Clouds tab from the pop-up window, connect to your online account, then navigate and select the picture.
    • Use Free Photos
      If you want to use a free photo from Sitebeat as your Video Cover Image, click the Free Photos tab from the pop-up window, then navigate through the categories and select the picture.
  13. The Image will automatically be added to your Video as its Cover Image.

Congratulations! You just customised a Video in Sitebeat.
