The Video Tag

The video tag supports any mp4 video, as it’s widely accepted by modern web standards over other video formats. Mozilla Docs

All code examples have a ‘-‘ placed before the opening %. This should be removed when using the code, as it’s only included to avoid placing videos within this post itself.

Just a video with a caption

Percentage Width: ‘60%’

Height will scale accordingly

{-% video center https://sample-videos.com/video123/mp4/720/big_buck_bunny_720p_1mb.mp4 60% Percent Width of 60 %}

Percent Width of 60

Alignment: ‘left’, ‘right’, ‘center’ (Default: left)

{-% video [left/center/right] clear https://sample-videos.com/video123/mp4/720/big_buck_bunny_720p_1mb.mp4 50% left caption %}

center caption
right caption

Extra div: ‘clear’

Works as mentioned in the image tag + noted in the documentation. ‘clear’ is used in the right aligned video above, so that text doesn’t overflow into the side. Not using clear in a small enough and side aligned video, allows for text to wrap around video.

{-% video center clear https://sample-videos.com/video123/mp4/720/big_buck_bunny_720p_1mb.mp4 50% Clear %}


‘autoplay’ (with ‘mute’) and ‘loop’

The video will autoplay as long as it’s muted. This is a standard from browser vendors in order to avoid annoying users.

{-% video center autoplay muted loop https://sample-videos.com/video123/mp4/720/big_buck_bunny_720p_1mb.mp4 50% ‘autoplay’ with ‘muted’ %}

autoplay with muted

Hide controls: ‘nocontrols’

Right click on the video for controls. Useful when using with autoplay and loop. Similar to using a gif within an image tag, except much more web friendly and fast. This purpose is the main reason for implementing the video tag.

Fig-20,25,… classes

Example usage of the fig-20,25… classes for automatic width. As noted in the documentation, fig classes automatically override to float left. Use custom width if ever needing to adjust the alignment in addition to custom size.
