What You Need to Know When Choosing a Tool to Embed Videos in WordPress

In today’s digital age, where attention spans are dwindling and competition for online visibility is fierce, incorporating engaging video content into your WordPress website has become more crucial than ever. 

Videos have the power to captivate and connect with your audience in ways that text or images simply cannot. They can convey your message with emotion, demonstrate product functionality, or showcase your brand’s personality. However, selecting the right tool to embed videos seamlessly into your WordPress site can be a daunting task. 

In this blog post, we will delve into the myriad benefits of using Jupiter X’s Advanced Video widget to embed videos in WordPress for a truly immersive and engaging web experience.

What are the benefits of the video content?

Incorporating video content into your website offers a range of benefits that contribute to increased user engagement by delivering information effectively and a more enriching user experience.

Increase user engagement and experience

Videos have a unique ability to capture attention and engage users. By embedding compelling video content, you can attract visitors, keep them on your site for longer durations, and reduce bounce rates. Engaged users are more likely to explore your website further and interact with your brand.

Comprehensive viewing experience for visitors

Videos provide a powerful medium for storytelling. They allow you to convey your message, share narratives, and evoke emotions more effectively and quickly than plain text. By visually showcasing your products, services, or brand values, you can create a deeper connection with your audience, fostering trust and loyalty.

What factors to consider when choosing a video embedding tool

When selecting a video embedding tool for your website, there are several factors to consider ensuring you make the right choice. Some of the most important ones are as follows:

Customization options

Customization options are crucial for ensuring that the video player aligns with your website’s branding and design. Look for embedding tools that offer a range of customization options such as:

The Advanced Video widget provides you with control over video controls and covers, giving you the ability to customize the behavior and appearance of these elements within your video player. You can choose whether to add or remove video controls such as the play button, progress bar, current time, full screen, rewind, and fast forward, and also modify the thumbnail as your video cover as you wish.

The Advanced Video widget offers the flexibility to choose from 3 predefined skins for your video player. These predefined skins are pre-designed visual styles that provide different appearances and layouts for your video display.

The new Advanced Video widget in Jupiter X v3, offers a variety of powerful features that enhance the video embedding experience. With its drag-and-drop functionality, you can easily add and position videos within your website’s layout. Pre-designed templates provide a convenient starting point for video displays, saving you time and effort. Additional features like sticky videos, looping, muting, and autoplay options give you greater control over how and where the videos are presented and played. These features enhance the overall user experience and allow you to create engaging and interactive video content.


Consider the pricing model of the video embedding tool. Opting for a one-time fee for the tool is often more cost-effective than subscribing to a service with recurring charges. The Advanced Video widget comes with a one-time fee you pay for the Jupiter X theme, so you won’t have to pay for any extra subscription to embed videos in your website.

How to add a video using Jupiter X Advanced Video widget

Just like with any other widget, you first need to make sure Advanced Video is installed for the Elementor page builder. Go to Jupiter X > Settings > Elementor and check if the Advanced Video feature is checked off in the list.

Enter the video URL if it’s hosted on YouTube or Vimeo or simply upload your video if it’s self-hosted and start customizing the video player appearance to your liking using the customization options mentioned above.

Let’s wrap it up!
