Video Widget

This guide explains how to add YouTube and Vimeo videos to Elementor Page Builder for WordPress.

Use this widget to embed videos from the video-sharing websites YouTube and Vimeo.
Control how the video is embedded, hide the controls and other video options. 
Another cool feature is the image overlay. Instead of the default image, use your own image cover for the video. This is a great way to entice the visitors to play the video.
