Quick start: installing a video widget on a website

Congratulations on signing up to Vidwidget service. You made the right decision. But what to do next? How to make a video widget?

After registration, go to your Personal Account and click on the “New Widget” button.

On the page for creating a widget, fill in its name (1), select where the widget should be located on the site – on the right or left side(2) and upload the video (3).

Technical requirements for the video

  • Format: vertical 9:16
    If you upload a video in horizontal format, the system will automatically crop the edges, leaving the center part.
  • File extension: .mp4, .mov, .wmv, .avi
  • Duration: up to 60 seconds
  • File size: up to 300MB.

Check this box if you want the widget to be on the mobile version of the site as well (4). Decide where it will be located on the mobile version – just like on the full version of the site or on the other side (in this case, check the box (5)). When the fields of this block are filled in, click “Save” (6).

After you save, your page will refresh and a script will appear. You can add it to your site. But take your time, you can continue customizing Vidwidget.

Check the box (7) if you want the widget to have a button. You can customize the appearance of the button as you like. Add what will be written on the button (8) and where it will lead (9). Select the background (10) and text colour (11). Remember to save all settings (12).

When you are happy with the result, save it (13) and copy the embed code to your site (14).

You can edit the widget at any time. To do so, select the edit icon from the main menu (15).
