What is a video list?

A video list is a way of displaying videos with descriptions. When a customer clicks a video, it will start to play.

There are two different listing layout options for video lists:

  • list - displays each video in a full-width row.

  • grid - displays a set number of videos per row.

Both of these options have additional customisation settings.

How do I customise a video list?

There are a range of customisation settings for a video list depending on which listing layout option has been used.

The settings available for the list option are:

  • Listing alignment - Choose how you want the listing to be aligned. Everything to the left, or everything centred.

  • Listing horizontal layout - Choose how much of the row is used for the video and how much is used for the description.

The settings available for the grid option are:

  • Listing orientation - Choose how you want each listing to be orientated. Vertically (video above, description below) or horizontally (video to the left and description to the right).

  • Listing alignment - Choose how you want the listing to be aligned. Everything to the left, or everything centred.

  • Listing horizontal layout* - Choose how much of the row is used for the video and how much is used for description.

  • Maximum listings per row - Choose the maximum number of listings you want to display per row in the grid. (e.g. 3 per row, 4 per row, etc).

  • Listing minimum width - Choose the minimum width a listing can be. This determines when the listings wrap on to the next row in the grid when the space available is reduced.

* Only available if the Listing orientation is set to Horizontal.
