Video Group Widget | SHOP Builder


When editing an advanced page, you can add the "Video Group Widget" to insert a Youtube or Vimeo video and adjust the video's position. 

⚠️ Before you begin:

  • SHOP Builder currently only supports Ultra Chic, Kingsman, Varm, and Philia theme templates.
  • After creating a page using SHOP Builder, the page can still be displayed even if you switch to other theme templates, but it cannot be edited and the layout may be messed up. Please take note of this before publishing the page.

Then scroll down to adjust the video-related settings, you can adjust the following options (the first 3 are set disabled by default):

  • Full Screen: Adjust the video width, you can set the video as fullscreen. 
  • Auto play: After you switch on this setting, the video will autoplay when customers scroll to the location of the video.
  • Auto mute: You can set the video on mute, and it will be muted by default when playing. 
  • Video Proportions: Select the video proportions, you can select 16:9 or 4:3.
  • Padding: You can adjust the padding between the video and the page.



  • It is recommended to use the same video proportions as when it was filmed to prevent black frames on the side.
  • According to common browser guideline (applicable to Chrome, Safari, and other browsers), the video will only autoplay with sound under the following circumstances:
      1. The viewer has previously interacted with the website (i.e., clicked on the button and switched pages).
      2. The viewer is viewing the desktop version, has previously visited the website, and played the video with the sound on.


Step 7

When setting up, you can click the Save button on the bottom, and a preview screen of the added video group widget will display on the right. Screen_Shot_2022-12-16_at_6.34.16_PM.png
